Abstract:This thesis is the result of a study on energy infrastructure problems and the energy policy of the European Union (hereafter EU). Is the concept of the ‘Energy Union’ for Energy infrastructure a step forward or not? As energy is getting more and more important for the economy of Europe, the single European market, the level of welfare, environment and security of supply, an adequate energy infrastructure is also becoming more and more important. Especially in the European countries themselves very little is known about the problems Europe faces regarding its infrastructure in such an important sector and what the implications are for energy infrastructure when dealing with renewable energy sources. In the academic literature, little is written about European energy infrastructure problems and how they could be solved within the EU. This study contributes to the academic literature by providing insight into the specific European energy infrastructure problems and linking them with the concept of the ‘Energy Union’ from an economic perspective
