The EU Elections 2024 may have concluded, but the analysis has just begun. While progressive voices hold onto their position as the second-largest majority, the rise of the radical right is expected to have an unforeseen impact over the next five years.

Recovery Watch series

By Franco Tomassoni and Tiago Santos Pereira – In collaboration with FES, Colabor and Institut Emile Vandervelde


This policy study is part of the Recovery Watch series, which monitors the implementation of National Recovery and Resilience Plans.

Analysing the case studies of Denmark, Estonia, France, Portugal, and Spain, the researchers demonstrate that European energy policy still lacks significant cross-border infrastructure investments, as well as the need for further monitoring and evaluation to reach a concept of energy security that puts European resilience at the centre.
