Report of a study of EU energy policies by Cambridge Energy Research Associates, April 2009. It says that the European Union is set to be the first advanced econ­omic grouping to achieve a sustained reduction in its demand for energy, as policies to curb gas and electricity consumption take effect.

The EU’s energy efficiency strategy, even if only partially successful, will cut countries’ dependence on imports of Russian gas and ease the need for new energy infrastructure such as power stations and gas pipelines. It will also create a challenge for European energy companies, which will face shrinking domestic markets.
