[en] In the framework of the european elections of june 2004, the author takes stock on the main european institutions and their functions. Since many years the European Union promotes the development of the renewable energies and the energy efficiency. This promotion is based on directives and support programs. Meanwhile the France delays the transposition of these directives. (A.L.B.)
[en] A debate on energy policy in France and more generally in Europe is made in this issue. Nuclear power, energy efficiency, evolution of the transportation sector, the energy demand, the carbon emissions are such points to be studied and discussed. (N.C.)
[en] This document aims to define the european energy policy. It details the energy market liberalization (unbundling, transport, production, regulators), the energy efficiency, the european directive on the renewable energies and the perspectives of the french presidency. (A.L.B.)
[en] Debates about energy policy for the France: Members of Parliament, the presidents of Electricite de France and Cogema, spokespersons for the ecologists political group, scientists, general administrator of the Cea, member of the Deutsche Bundestag set out their different points of view about the future of nuclear energy. Energy conservation and efficiency, renewable energy sources, carbon dioxide emissions and Kyoto protocol, energy supplies safety, economic points of view are as many points tackled during these debates. If everyone agrees to think that it is necessary to diversify the energy sources, no agreement comes to light about the place of nuclear energy in this diversification. (N.C.)
[en] A set of brief articles outlines the importance of energy networks of all kinds for the future of energy conservation. Thus, all networks (communication, data, production command and control) will have a role to play to make all energy networks (electricity, gas, heat, cold, water, sewage, telecommunications) communicate with each other, and a new consumption/production model will have to be developed for each territory by taking into account its capacities to improve energy efficiency and valorize renewable energies. The authors also propose a historical perspective of network development and of their trend to become interconnected and complementary, comment the governance issue in terms of concession, evoke the supply of public networks with biogas (legal framework under development), discuss the value of the project of development of smart grids, suggest that a better electricity demand management could be an efficient alternative to grid development, comment the context and implications of the European directive Linky, outline that heat networks will contribute to the reduction of the environmental impact of buildings, evoke the issue of cold water networks and their impact on air conditioning, present the original heat network which is about to be built in Saint-Brieuc, etc.
