*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Experienced EIB's President Werner Hoyer (2012-2024), former Minister of Germany for European affairs, (See, f.ex.: ..., etc), Replying to a Topical "Eurofora"s Question, ensured, indirectly but clearly, that the "East-Med" Gas Pipeline project of Cyprus, Israel, Greece, and others, (f.ex. Italy, etc), for Direct Energy Transports inside the EU, withOut being Obliged to Transit from Any Foreign Country, has Nowadays come closer in Tune with EU's New "Green Deal" Policy.

------------------------------

- "Eurofora" asked Hoyer whether the New EU Commission's "Green Deal" policy would make More Important for the European General Interest, such Energy Transport Projects as the "East-Med" Gas Pipeline, Directly into the EU (i.e. withOut having to Transit via Any Foreign Country), from Cyprus/Israel Natural Resources, through Greece and Italy, with an EU Environment-Friendly Energy, deprived of any CO2 emmission...

Earlier this Month, during a Trilateral Summit of Greece - Cyprus - Israel Leaders, for the Signature of 2 Contracts on the Construction and Supplies of that "East-MED" Project, new Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, stressed that it will offer "Independent Energy Sources" to Europe, with "Environment-Friendly Gas".

 >>> - EIB's President Hoyer, in Reply to the above-mentioned "Eurofora"s Question, underlined, from the outset, the main Fact that, Nowadays, - "We (EU) shall have an Energy Policy based on certain Criteria :"

- "The First is Independence (from Foreign Countries, as Providers and/or Transit)", he pointed out ;

+ "while the Second depends on (C02) Emmissions", (which must be naturally Absent), Hoyer resumed in substance.

=> By doing so, he Obviously pointed at an Augmented Interest, in the New Context of EU's "Climate Neutrality" Targets' transition, for Projects such as the "East-Med", (Already Supported by EU Commission and even USA, etc).  

Various Other such Projects, might, eventually, also be, f.ex. Romania's Gas Pipeline and/or River Transport Draft Plans from the Black Sea, Directly into Europe's Heartland, through Danube and Rhine,                 and/or the "Europe-Asia InterConnector", for Electricity Transport, through an UnderSee Cable, from Israel and Cyprus to Greece and Italy, (that Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, had Initially proposed, and which was Recently Boosted also by the current Cyprus' President, Nicos Anastassiades, etc).

+ "By reasoning in that way, some may even Find ...Nuclear Energy preferable", Hoyer went on to Add...

Indeed, French President Emanuel Macron, in his Press Conference at the Latest EU summit in Brussels, on December 2019, (See "Eurofora" NewsReport from the spot, at : .., etc), confirmed that Poland, Chechia, and others, had just Evoked a Possibility to use Nuclear Energy in the EU Transition towards "Climate Neutrality". But all Acknowledged, however, that, obviously, there are also some Security Concerns to Settle, in that case, (Naturally Absent in the case of Gas).

++ At any case, in the foreseable Future, an important Factor is also to Ensure the "Trust" of Banks and other Private Investors, to any such New Projects, advised, speaking in abstracto, as a matter of General Principle, the Experienced EIB's President, in his Replies also to MEP's various other Questions, Earlier.

    Strategically located between Paris and Prague, Strasbourg offered a natural location for the French and Czech EU 2008 and 2009 Presidencies to tune their agendas for a resolute European move towards Renewable Energies, during an exceptional Joint Parliamentary meeting on "Energy and Sustainable Development", co-organized here by the Presidents of EU Parliament, Hans Gert Poettering, French National Assembly, Bernard Accoyer, and Senate, Gerard Larcher, on November 20 and 21.

    Concluded by a busy-looking French super-Minister of Energy, Environment and Regional planning, Jean-Louis Borloo, the exceptional gathering of Top MPs from all 27 EU States' Parliaments hoped that a Ministerial meeting prepared by Borloo, will pave the way to an overall agreement at the level of EU Heads of State and Government Summit chaired on December 2008 by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, allowing the next EU chair, the Czech Republic, to start working from the beginning of 2009 on concrete measures.   

Speaking to "EuroFora" President Accoyer resumed the general feeling by stressing that "Europe has no Oil-Gas resources, but an important Scientific-Technologic potential. Therefore, we must develop Renewable Energy sources". "Since the Sun is the most abundant and free RES,  we must do the outmost to boost Solar Energy" solutions, he added, at the eve of a special meeting on Solar energy and the Mediterranean organised by Borloo on Saturday.     

Oil-gas supplies' security and diversification were also examined by the EU gathering, after which, President Accoyer replied  to our question on risks of long, expensive and fragile pipe-lines' projects, crossing through foreign countries out of the EU, compared to new possibilities for Sea and River Ship direct EU transport even of Gas, thanks to New Liquification technologies : - "We have just écreated the Union for the Mediterranean for concrete projects like these", Accoyer stressed, speaking of Sea-River Ship Highways, fundeable under EU's TENS programs.     

 Rapporteur on "Energy innovation and sustainable development", Dr. Bedrich Moldan, vice-President of Czech Senate's Environment and Regional Development Committee, added that Climat issues, price uncertainties and diminution of accessible Fossil energies, played together with EU's RST potential in order to make RES both a need and "an opportunity". However, in cases as "Solar Energy, even if the main Scientific ideas are already here, we have to make some technologic breakthroughs in order to find how to produce it on a large scale, store and transport it", Dr. Moldan added to "EuroFora".     

Czech interest for RES was also expressed, earlier in Strasbourg, by Jan Kohout, the deputy Minister pf Foreign Affairs who participated to a workshop on "Renewable Energies" organized by the French EU 2008 Presidency : - "The focus is on Development", he told us.    

On this and other RES issues, Dr. Moldan anounced the Czech EU 2009 chair's intention to organize an important 2-days Conference on Renewable Energies and Sustainable Development late January 2009 at nearby Prague.
