Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The EU has much les room to cut its energy use, which is clearly still excessive.

So, in relative terms, I think the US will have an easier time making sizeable incremental improvements.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?

Isn't this just saying that the current energy consumption in the USA is done with such squander, they will have less difficulties to make an energy cut?

The EU has perhaps less room in absolute terms, but I'd agree with TBG that the relative compactness in Europe (and it's relatively extensive coastline) will significantly aid.

My current concern would be commodities prices...

Also, have there been diaries on energy & connectivity?
