Over the last decade, we have observed increasing coordination and harmonisation of the energy policies between Member States of the European Union, and we have also seen a shift of energy policy competence to Brussels. We include papers that explore the impact of increasing Europeanisation of energy policy on the prospects of a transition to a zero-carbon energy system. Does this increasing Europeanisation mainly contribute to increasing cost-efficiency and overall more ambitious domestic policies? Or does it instead also hold risks, such as slowing down the transition pace to the lowest speed acceptable to all Member States?
