Summary/Abstract: In the European Union the discussion of a post-2020 framework for climate and energy policies has already commenced. Yet the fight against climate change – considered to be a solid driver for a more ambitious EU policy – has been constrained by the economic crisis in the Union and an insufficient international approach. As this paper reveals, the ongoing debate is increasingly shaped by the issue of the greater competitiveness of the EU’s economies in the world, and the development of industrial sectors. Taking advantage of the opportunities offered by the growing importance of re-industrialization and the boosting of the EU’s competitive edge, the V4 countries – which face similar energy and economic challenges – should be active in this debate and present a well-considered approach.
