This article presents energy policies in the Baltic Sea Region from a
sustainability aspect as well as a security of supply perspective.
Energy security is a multi-dimensional concept, including issues such as
security, economic, technological, social, political and environmental
risk factors. EU involvement and coordination in the region are met by
caution among member states, Russia and other actors. National interests
differ; some macro-regional groups focus on the environmental aspect,
e.g. renewables in line with the climate goals, while others are more
into security of supply, affordability and energy access. The EU
competence in energy policy is diffuse, according to this multi-level
governance study.
