No EU policy can be perfect – it will inevitably be a compromise between a good cause and a due cause. However, we are now at a critical turning point, as several pillars of former Barroso’s EU energy policy have already collapsed, prompting an update or an entire overhaul. Then what are the key components that can put EU energy policy back on track toward reaching our 2020-2030 goals?

This Manifesto offers a new vision of the energy policy for our new Commission by focusing on 5 different pillars: 1) the Internal Electricity Market, 2) the Internal Gas Market, 3) 28 national ways from 20-20-20 to 2030, 4) the Energy Policy Governance and 5) the External Energy Security and Policy.​
