Pravda, Russia’s leading newspaper challenges the effectiveness of the European Commission’s energy strategy. Although Cyprus has substantial offshore natural gas, it argues that it will not reach Europe until earliest 2022. This short article is worth a read.

As an expert in strategic change, I am increasingly alarmed at the absence of robust, risk-assessed and integrated strategy at the European Commission (EC). Without  effective strategy, EC policy decisions often waste vast amounts of funds on short-term political decisions.

In my view, the EC Energy Directorate is long on green issues and compliance but very short on policy and strategy.

Any thoughts on priorities for the new EC, Energy Commissioner, Miguel Arias Canete?
