The article discusses the vulnerability and resilience in the energy system of Europe. It examines the external and internal dynamics, as well as the vulnerability of the energy system. It notes that resilience in the energy system is narrowly defined in terms of either reliability or durability. It points out that reducing the vulnerability of the European Union Energy requires policy interventions that steer the direction of development towards embedding resilience. Further, it explores the resilience and adaptive capacity for energy systems.
