The theme for 2017 has been the substantial updating of the Member State chapters on Portugal, Bulgaria and prospectively for the autumn Release, Cyprus and France. For 2018, fully updated chapters are planned for Italy and prospectively Estonia and the Czech Republic later in the year, covering oil, coal and gas and electricity wholesale provision, generation, transmission, distribution and supply. We can expect further initiatives from the European Commission directed at the European Union’s significant energy challenges, including energy security and its dependence on energy imports, the use of fossil fuels and global warming. Much of this is seen as achievable through the continued growth of the share of renewable sources of energy in meeting the EU’s energy requirements and other measures set out in the EU’s 2020 and 2030 energy strategies and beyond.
