Abstract

Energy sources have always been an important place for human beings throughout history. The 'Energy Security' entity has a very important place for the EU, as the European region is an industrialized region, but its resources cannot provide enough energy for this industrialization. The European Union has always implemented sensitive policies for Energy Security. Today, most studies on energy security are focused first on oil and secondly on natural gas. One of the biggest investments of the 21st century is definitely investments in solar energy. Energy security has become an important policy area for the EU since the 2000s. As I mentioned earlier, the EU is made up of countries that import more energy. Since Europe cannot produce enough energy to meet the needs of its industry, it must import most of its energy. In this case, Russia is a major energy supplier to Europe because the EU receives most of its natural gas from Russia. Although the EU industry is highly developed, it is dependent on energy from abroad due to insufficient energy resources. Russia has been a region where the EU has safely imported its energy for almost 30 years. Even though ‘Energy Security’ is the most important thing for the EU, the same cannot be said for Russia. After the Cold War, Russia uses natural gas in the best possible way to make itself strong in the international arena. That is why the EU is looking for alternative energy sources and a variety of energy sources.
