European energy policy pursues the objective of a sustainable, competitive and secure supply of energy. In 2007, the European Commission adopted an energy policy for Europe, which was supported by several documents on different aspects of energy and included an action plan to meet the major energy chal- lenges 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 wide and contemporary view of energy interchanges between states was not available. In a previous work of the same authors, energy import/ export interchanges between European States were used to develop a geographic overview at one- glance. In this paper, the enhanced Interchange Energy Network (IEN) is investigated from a model- ling point of view, as a Small-World Net, by supposing that connections can exist between States with a probability depending also on economic/political relations between countries.
