Abstract

The European Green Deal (EGD) is an ambitious agenda designed to transform the EU into a prosperous, sustainable, competitive, and carbon-neutral society by 2050. This strategy is intended to encompass a wide range of economic sectors, making it a potentially game-changing policy tool in the battle against climate change in and beyond European borders. However, EU member states are still divided on some matters such as those related to the role of Europe’s future energy mix, the use of renewable energies, energy efficiency, and reduction of the greenhouse gas (GHG). Energy implications are also expected to have international effects in terms of global energy trade and energy security with possible geopolitical consequences. This paper attempts to discuss and explore some of the energy challenges and opportunities the deal sees on the horizon to develop and corroborate future policy discussion(s).
