    In the wake of the European Union’s (EU) enlargements in 2004 and 2007, which saw the accession of 12 new member states, lengthy debates and discussion took place on the burden of onboarding the new member states, the difficulty of ensuring their compliance with EU rules and regulations and the dependence of many of these states on a single supplier for their energy needs. This paper aims to assess the EU’s efforts to form a comprehensive energy security policy in recent decades, paying particular attention to the development of the theory of energy security and the main developments of the EU’s energy security policy in recent years. The Energy Union, a flagship initiative launched by the European Commission in 2015, will be assessed through an examination of its governance structure and achievements in specific policy domains.
