Declaration on the Single European Energy Market
But 25 years after the signing of the Single European Act there is still no single market in electricity.
A properly functioning European market in electricity would have many benefits:
- increased competition leading, in the long-term, to reduced electricity prices - improved security of supply (and reduced risk of blackouts) - reaping the full advantages of fuel-free, pollution-free renewable energy sources produced in ever greater quantities in many parts of Europe - opportunities for increased trade in electricity regardless of the source
Europe Europe Europe Europe’s Europe
25 years ago European leaders showed courage and vision by creating a single European market. Today’s leaders must show similar determination in achieving a single market in electricity, and the Heads of State have the opportunity to show such courage and vision by agreeing on 4 February to create a single market for electricity by 2015."
