This policy paper examines the phenomenon of “energy islands” in the EU, namely – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in the Baltic Sea region and Spain and Portugal on the Iberian Peninsula, analysing the causes, outstanding issues and implications of the current situation for future development of EU energy policy and energy policy in the countries concerned. Development of strategic energy infrastructure, involvement of energy companies, as well as putting in place legislation that would provide a framework for effectively functioning market, increased energy cooperation and energy security in the EU are among the issues covered. A summary of recommendations is provided for the particular two situations, serving also as guidelines for countries in a similar situation.
