This audit sought to determine whether implementation of internal energy market policy measures and EU spending on energy infrastructure have provided security of energy supply benefits effectively. The EU’s objective of completing the internal energy market by 2014 was not reached. Energy infrastructure in Europe is generally not yet designed for fully integrated markets and therefore does not currently provide effective security of energy supply. Financial support from the EU budget in the field of energy infrastructure has made only a limited contribution to the internal energy market and security of energy supply.
