The European Union (EU) is represented in the G20 by the Union as well as by theindividual (EU-4) member states France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom. Itcould therefore play a role as an agenda-setter and multiplier in the G20 and beyond.However, internal consensus within the EU on the pace towards decarbonisation andan energy transition is eroding, and the EU is losing its frontrunner status and role asa ‘best practice’ reference for others. In particular, because of the multiple crises theEU faces, its ambitions in multilateral sustainable energy governance are stagnating.
