EU-Russia energy relations: the need for active engagement

15 March 2006


The EU needs a coherent energy strategy to cope with its increasing needs and enhance its security of supply. Relations with Russia, one of the world’s biggest sources of oil and gas, will be a key feature of this strategy. This Issue Paper by Andrew Monaghan, Director of the Russia Research Network, and Lucia Montanaro-Jankovski, a Policy Analyst at the EPC, examines the key dimensions of the EU-Russia energy dialogue. It proposes a three-pronged strategy for the Union: it must improve its energy efficiency, enhance its relations with key transit states; and devote time to building a more effective relationship with Russia.
