Aline Bartenstein explains in her latest policy paper for the Robert Schuman Foundation the EU’s bumpy road towards institutionalizing energy solidarity. Although we might be guardedly optimistic in face of the current ongoing energy crisis, new challenges are already emerging. “The French Yellow Vest movement has given us a foretaste of how social issues are linked to the green transition. (…) Looking to the not-too-distant future, we will see an increasing need for social solidarity, which will certainly lead to some serious conflict, not only in terms of distribution, but also for the EU as a political project.”
