The European Commission introduced on Wednesday its new energy policy, including suggestions on alternative energy resources and lower consumption, given the radical climate changes lately.

Concomitantly, the Commission suggested measures designed to lower the level of dependence on foreign resources providers, the Reuters agency informs. Some of the suggestions refer to the increasing of energy production using nuclear plants.

The new policy comes in the context of a never-ending quarrel between Russia and Belarus, peaking recently in a scandal that caused a true oil crisis in the Central Europe.

European ministers say that the developed states, mainly the 27 EU members should focus on decreasing the polluting emissions 30% before 2020. The Commission also pleads for significant energy savings and investments in regenerative energy.

A special demand was issued towards Russia, asked to regain its credibility as oil and natural gas provider.
