Debate on the Third Package
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. The articles by Kjølbye and Cohen first appeared in Energy Viewpoints, a publication of the APX Group.
