In the last years, the European Commission adopted an energy policy for Europe with several documents including an action plan to meet the major energy challenges Europe has to face. A farsighted diversified yearly mix of energies was suggested to countries, aiming at increasing security of supply and efficiency, but a systemic view of energy exchanges between states is still missing. Energy import/export exchanges between European States suggest that economic/political relations between countries cause unpredictable behaviors for the European energy exchange network. This network is herein investigated from a modeling point of view. European annual exchanges of energy appear to present Small World phenomena, when supposing that connections between States are characterized by probability values depending on economic/political relations between countries.
