Time for real change: Ukraine crisis shows bankruptcy of “security-as-usual”
Poland’s proposal to reduce the EU’s energy dependence on Russia by collective buying of gas and maximising domestic production of coal shows a reactive, “security-as-usual” approach that is totally behind the times, writes Luca Bergamaschi of think tank E3G. According to Bergamaschi, the EU should instead improve its energy security by radically reforming its energy system, above all by improving energy efficiency. Studies show that Germany could cut its gas consumption by half in ten years if it wanted to – let alone a country like Ukraine, which is much more wasteful in use of gas. They also show that this provides tremendous business opportunities for companies in the EU.
The assistance programme for the Ukrainian gas sector
Ukraine is important to Russian geopolitics, and its main focus is on gas pipes that encircle Europe and connect Russia with the West like an umbilical cord. Wojciech Jakóbik, independent analyst at Jagiellonian Institute, developed some guidelines for Europe and a plan for Ukraine to decrease dependence on Russian energy supplies.
