Summary/Abstract: Energy has recently become a key issue in European Union politics. This is one of the reasons why, in January 2007, the EU published a draft energy policy, in which it clearly defined the strategic goals of this policy for Europe so that sustainability, the security of energy supplies, and competitiveness are all interconnected and that their attainment is mutually contingent. The road map to achieving these goals is constituted by a complex of activities in multiple fields – from market liberalization through renewable energy sources and energy efficiency to nuclear energy and foreign energy policy. The energy policy of the Slovak Republic is also based on these pillars.
