To build a low carbon, competitive and energy secure European Union

Should the EU strengthen its Climate and Energy Package if there is no guarantee that other major countries will follow or adopt a parallel strengthening?
If yes then how and when, given that the EU is still recovering from the worst economic crisis in a generation?
These questions are at the heart of current European hesitations on energy and climate and this synthesis aims at framing an answer.

This synthesis report builds on all the contributions to the project, the underlying papers are available for download.
