European energy politics, the green transition and EU-Russia energy relations, Marco Siddi (Montalcini assistant professor, Department of Political and Social Science, University of Cagliari, Italy and Senior Research Fellow, Finnish Institute of International Affairs, Helsinki, Finland) - (e-book)

"In this timely book, Marco Siddi expertly navigates topics of European energy politics, drawing on pressing issues from times of unprecedented crisis. From the war in Ukraine to worsening climate change, he illustrates the intense pressure the EU is under to accelerate its green transition, and explores the potential obstacles that may arise on the road to energy security. Siddi provides a wealth of critical analysis on the rise and decline of EU-Russia energy relations; the nature of the EU's actorness in both domestic and external energy policy; and the opportunities and challenges of the energy transition for the European continent. The geopolitical consequences of the energy transition are adeptly examined, and the book highlights the critical need for the EU to adopt well-calibrated policies and develop multidimensional international partnerships to obtain access to key supply chains and promote a just global energy transition. With a comprehensive and thorough analysis of contemporary EU energy policy, this book will prove essential to academics and students interested in international relations, energy policy, regulation and governance, European politics and public policy. It will also be a vital resource to practitioners and diplomats working on energy and climate issues in national ministries, European union institutions, and diverse international organisations"--, Provided by publisher
