Abstract:With the effective period of Directive 2009/28/EC comes to its end, this research intents to investigate the energy transition which took place during the last decade through a perspective of the circular Europeanization in the cases of France, Poland, and the UK in order to understand how national energy strategies are formulated by EU policy making process and formulate the latter at the same time. The analysis will take all three models of Europeanization into account and put into the historical context of EU energy policy development. Results show that the missing of a competent and accountable formal institution designated to Renewable Energy Source deployment is the common problem to energy transition in all three cases. Low efficiency bureaucracy and nepotism are also damaging to the development of renewables. Essentially, it is the misalignment of energy strategy and its underling interests between member states and the EU that hindered an energy transition towards renewable energies.
