A debate on energy policy: The pros and cons of the Commission's Third Package
European Energy Review, January - February 2007
In the following pages, European Energy Review presents four views on the EU’s energy policy, as laid down in the Third Package. Lars Kjølbye, Head of the Energy Unit in the Competition Directorate of the Commission, and Robin Cohen of Deloitte, argue about the pros and cons of unbundling. Anders Åslund, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, defends the policy of ‘reciprocity’ towards Gazprom. Reinier Zwitserloot, ceo of oil and gas producer Wintershall, warns that Europe’s ‘anti-Gazprom’ policy endangers security of supply.
