When we talk about energy and the use made of it come to mind, just as quickly comes the vested interests involved in it. So when the energy crisis is mentioned, we should ask: Is it real or has it been provoked? It is also conceivable that it may be a crisis in the energy model. Or maybe both at the same time. We will see along the way reading this TEJ special edition that we have prepared with renewed enthusiasm for all our readers.
The consequences in the EU that the conflict between Russia and Ukraine over the supply of Russian gas had placed the issue of energy crisis at the top of the European political agenda. The Eurozone countries depend on foreign sources for more than 75% of their imported oil, which comes largely from the Middle East, and more than 50% of their gas, which also comes from the exterior. That means the EU is, and will remain, more energy dependent and therefore more vulnerable.
