Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Afew, when you say
The Green Paper presents a number of major policy directions on this vital subject and it states that the Public Consultation should open up a "wide-ranging public" (p.4) and "Community-wide" (p.19) debate on them.
do you mind producing the English Quotation from p.19? I couldn't find the equivalent in the Spanish version of the Green Paper, and when I went to check the English version I  couldn't find it either. No problem with p.4, the quote is easy to find there.

Page 19, point 3 :

3. The Community needs a real Community-wide debate on the different energy sources, including costs and contributions to climate change, to enable us to be sure that, overall, the EU's energy mix pursues the objectives of security of supply, competitiveness and sustainable development.

BTW, this translates, in the Consultation, into chapter C, Diversification of the energy mix, and a single question:

8. What should the EU do to ensure that Europe, as a whole, promotes the diversification of energy supplies?

  • Use more indigenous energy sources
  • Use more renewable energy sources
  • Use more nuclear energy
  • Be leader in energy efficiency

For a much-needed Community-wide debate, it's a wowser.

No problem, it isn't very easy to do, as Alex, Jérôme and I saw with the French version.

Sorry I didn't notice your request until now.
