Emerging policies for European energy
This paper gives an overview of the Conference on Emerging Policies for European Energy, convened by The Royal Institute of International Affairs in association with The British Institute of Energy Economy and the International Association for Energy Economics, London, 28-29 November 1994. Two opening sessions were mainly concerned with the context in which policies for European energy need to be formulated. The remaining sessions covered the three main issues currently affecting those policies: competition, liberalization, and privatization; environmental issues; and energy security. The next four papers in this issue, by Mors, Sterner, Grubb and Tromans, were presented at the Conference.
