The article analyses modern EU energy policy, which is affected by the existing challenges and geopolitical turmoil. The narrative goes from showing new logistics’ facets in the EU and the member states’ national political economy followed by the application of energy security issues in the national recovery and resilience plans, including the energy component in the Baltic States perspectives in gas supply and security. Besides, the article assesses the EU’s trajectory in managing available and perspective renewable energy resources (such as hydrogen and off-shore wind farms), as well as the European and the Baltic States energy sovereignty through a newly adopted REPowerEU plan, Modernisation Fund and joint gas purchasing under the EU energy platform.
