The ambition to create a European Energy Union derives from several different perspectives, where efforts to reduce Europe's energy dependency is one. Another perspective is potential large-scale economies that could benefit the European economy. The Lisbon treaty gave a legal base but the current differences among the member states are vital and many potential conflicts are still outside of the EU’s competence. Will the European Union be able to succeed in creating a well functioning European Energy Union?
