Madame Căcărău face lobby pentru liberalizarea exportului de gaze româneşti

Speaking in Brussels on Wednesday, leading Romanian ALDE deputy Adina-Ioana Valean said the "Us v national politicians" mindset had to change when it comes to energy.

She was a keynote speaker at an event, 'Completing the internal energy market: what needs to be done,' which was jointly organised by The Parliament Magazine and E-ON, the German energy giant.

The debate took place with the clock rapidly ticking on the 2014 deadline set by the commission for completion of the internal energy market.

This is supposed to provide common rules for electricity and gas markets on generation, transmission, distribution and supply.

However, the debate at Brussels Press Club heard that transposition of the EU's so-called 'third energy package' has been painfully slow, with some member states yet to implement the measures at national level.

Completing the EU’s internal energy market is essential if the EU wants to meet its goal of having a smart, secure and sustainable energy sector by 2050. Towards this end, a common framework throughout Europe with regards to energy efficiency, development of renewable energy technologies, emission abatement measures and competitive market rules is being pursued.
In 2009 the EU adopted its ‘third energy package’ to help further complete the competitive internal energy market by 2014, with common rules for electricity and gas markets regarding generation, transmission, distribution and supply.

However the transposition of the package into national law has been slow, with many member states having not even started to implement the measures by the end of 2011, the deadline for transposition at national level. Despite an increase in energy trade in the EU being a sign of better functioning markets, significant barriers still remain in achieving an integrated European energy market. These include insufficient interconnection capacity between member states, bottlenecks in electricity transmission and absence of harmonisation of market rules in member states.
