This  third  deliverable  of  the  WP1  of  the  Milesecure-2050  project  focuses  on  main trends  in  European  energy  policies,  taking  into  account  present  trends  and perspectives  in  terms  of  EU  and  single  Member  States  capacity  to  reduce  their dependency  on  external  energy  sources,  to  improve  the  energy  mix  favouring renewables,  and  to  face  climate  change  threats  in  order  to  achieve  a  sustainable development of both the economy, the society and the environment.
These challenges are even more crucial if we consider that main trends have been dramatically  changed  by  the  current  economic  crisis,  which  has  forced  to  reshape growth scenarios and readapt expected societal changes.
European uneven geographies of energy security and energy economics are, in fact, to be highlighted with the review of European policies and strategies for a low carbon society and their implications on environmental and energy policies, and on national and continental performances. Current economic, social and sustainability trends for EU  member  states  –  in  the  framework  of  the  aforementioned  crisis  –  tend  to represent  challenges  and  constraints  for  both  strategies  and  related  policies  that have,  among  other  objectives,  to  make  of  the  EU  the  part  of  the  world  with  the smarter, more sustainable and more inclusive growth (the Europe 2020 strategy).

The analysis provides, to such extent:
1.  a key-grid  of  policies,  trends  and  scenarios  concerning  energy  security  and  low carbon transition that Europe is experiencing and is likely to experience;
2.  the  definition  of  a  set  of  indicators  to  assess  the  geographical  differentiation
among  Member  States  in  pursuing  European  policies  and  objectives  towards  a low carbon society;
3.  a framework for the analysis of different geopolitical scenarios and spatial tensions originated  by  the  investments  in  new  technologies,  infrastructures  and  politico-economic  alliances.  This  framework  has  been  applied  to  three  Member  States
(Germany, Italy, Poland) with very different typologies of energy strategies, trends, policies and market situations.
