Strategia polityki energetycznej Republiki Federalnej Niemiec
Germany’s Energy Security Policy
Languages of publication
The aim of this article is to analyse the strategic goals of the energy policy of the Federal Republic of Germany. Key political motives behind Germany’s energy policy strategy are reviewed, with the author applying the geo-economic approach. Noting that energy security and competitive economy of the Federal Republic of Germany rest on its energy partnerships with the Russian Federation, energy infrastructure and EU climate policy, the author reiterates the significance of stable political partnerships, determination to build a position as a distribution centre for energy and energy resources in Europe, as well as export of technology and imposition of national preferences on other countries. The American announcement of a renegotiation of the climate agreement may exert an unfavourable impact on the geo-economic interests of Germany in the area of energy.
