1 ENERGY SECURITY VIA IMPROVED GOVERNANCE NEEDS Forum 2 Energy Supply Security – Present and Future Issues KRAKOW, 5 & 6 July 2007 Hélène CONNOR, Ph.D` Laura WILLIAMSON

2 ENERGY SECURITY VIA IMPROVED GOVERNANCE Definition of energy security: Quantitative Abundancy or sufficiency Reliability and long-term reliance of supply Affordability (and cost control all along the chain) Qualitative Safety as absence of danger for workers and the public Cleanliness, concern for impacts, wastes… Full cost accounting, ie including quantifiable externalities

3 ENERGY SECURITY VIA IMPROVED GOVERNANCE Diagnostic: Traditional energy policy deals mainly with quantitative issues and does not/cannot forecast disasters. This why we have climate change, nuclear universal contamination,chemical pollutions… Need for new decision makers, i.e. there is urgency to improve/create social capital.

4 ENERGY SECURITY DEFINED BY THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION Bruxelles, le COM(2006) 848 final COMMUNICATION DE LA COMMISSION AU CONSEIL ET AU PARLEMENT EUROPÉEN Feuille de route pour les sources d'énergie renouvelables Les sources d'énergie renouvelables au 21e siècle: construire un avenir plus durable {SEC(2006) 1719} {SEC(2006) 1720} {SEC(2007) 12} 4.2. Sécurité dapprovisionnement en énergie Les sources d'énergie renouvelables contribuent à la sécurité de l'approvisionnement en augmentant la part d'énergie issue de la production intérieure, en diversifiant la palette des combustibles, en diversifiant les sources des importations d'énergie et en augmentant la part d'énergie provenant de régions politiquement stables. L'UE renforcera sa position sur tous ces critères de la sécurité d'approvisionnement si elle atteint la part d'énergie renouvelable

5 ENERGY SECURITY VIA IMPROVED GOVERNANCE WHY is this recommandation not applied? It shows that, even if everything has changed, many energy suppliers are still living in the Middle Ages of the oil era It is time to add to their exclusive top-down approach some collaborative bottom-up methods to reach a balance. This requires an improvement or, even in some OECD countries, the creation of social capital

6 ENERGY SECURITY VIA IMPROVED GOVERNANCE Improvement or creation of social capital: Need for an equitable, fair and transparent institutional framework able to generate some collective « intelligence » and consensual decision- making processes. Need for independant energy policies favoring the triple bottom line of ecodevelopment Need for stakeholders networks able to sustain projects along their full cycle: promoters, users, utilities, ESCOs, SME, NGOs, technicians, banks, local authorities.

7 What is your national social capital coefficient? 1. Identify all the actors of your national energy policy 2. Allocate to each of them a degree of involvement 3. Add the totals for each stakeholder 4. Make your conclusions and outline the needed improvements to reach a consensual decision on energy/climate policy: define your efficient participatory decision making process 5. Create a Council of Users (see US CUBs) and start your alternative safe energy planning to promote genuine ecodevelopment ENERGY SECURITY VIA IMPROVED GOVERNANCE

8 Energy Social Capital

9 ENERGY SECURITY VIA IMPROVED GOVERNANCE Why you need a council of users: It is a local permanent repository of knowledge independant from energy suppliers It can contribute to the development of a consensual Integrated Resource Planning (IRP) It can defend the interest of the local citizenry: need for accessible, clean, affordable services It prevents the emergence of unwanted, sometimes intangible and non-monetisable externalities (perfect complement to the work of ExternE/NEEDS) ….

10 ENERGY SECURITY VIA IMPROVED GOVERNANCE WRI Principles of good energy governance: Transparency and Access to Information Participation Accountability and Redress Mechanisms Capacity HELIO Added Goals: Ecodevelopment Solidarity

11 ENERGY SECURITY VIA IMPROVED GOVERNANCE ENERGY IS EVERYBODYS BUSINESS… TAKE YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES WHILE « IT IS NOT TOO LATE » Thank you for your attention! For more information go to:
