Europe’s malfunctioning energy market is stifling economic growth
By Jerzy Buzek / from energypost.eu
Today’s European energy market is still poorly interconnected and neither open nor competitive, writes former European Parliament President and former Prime Minister of Poland Jerzy Buzek, currently a Member of the European Parliament. Moreover, energy prices in the EU are much higher than in China and the US and are increasing. According to Burzek, a truly harmonised common energy market and coordinated investment in infrastructure are vital if Europe is to return to growth and remain competitive.
