The Yearbook is published yearly in collaboration with the Florence School of Regulation at the European University Institute (EUI).

"European energy policy is rolling. The engines have been completely overhauled; the Lisbon Treaty has added a turbo in 2009; Fukushima has led to a thorough stress test in 2010, the internal market package has entered into force 2011, and smart technology is spreading all over the sophisticated machine. 2012 may be considered as year of the take off."
