4.2. EU policies and actions

European energy policy and climate change adaptation policy have largely been developed separately. It will become increasingly important to mainstream climate change adaptation, particularly with respect to sectors that are expected to be impacted by climate change, such as the water sector and indeed the energy sector. At the European level, considerable efforts have taken place to mainstreaming climate change adaptation, including in the energy sector (Capriolo, 2016; EC, 2018i, Annex XI). This section gives an overview of EU policies and actions that are relevant for adaptation in the energy system.
