Chapter 2: Competences in EU energy policy

Kim Talus and Pami Aalto


Energy has been at the core of the EU project since the beginning. However, a legal basis for EU action in this area was only created with the Lisbon Treaty. Article 194 TFEU now provides for objectives of EU energy policy and a framework to enact EU-level regulation in this area. This chapter examines the vertical division of competences between EU and its Member States. While the primary focus of the chapter is on the interpretation of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and Article 194 in particular, the chapter also discusses questions relating to multilevel governance in the context of EU energy policy.
