It publishes or co-publishes the publications in the context of the communication activities of the institutions. Moreover, the Publications Office offers a number of online services giving free access to information on EU law ( EUR-Lex ) , EU publications ( EU Bookshop ) , public procurement ( TED ) , and EU research and development ( CORDIS ) .

[ edit ] Energy resources The European Union has large coal, oil , and natural gas reserves . There are six oil producers in the European Union, primarily in North Sea oilfields . The United Kingdom by far is the largest producer, however Denmark, Germany, Italy, Romania and the Netherlands all produce oil. If it is treated as a single unit, which is not conventional in the oil markets, the European Union is the seventh largest producer of oil in the world, producing 3,424,000 (2001) barrels a day. It is also the world's second largest consumer of oil , consuming much more than it can produce, at 14,590,000 (2001) barrels a day.
This survey looks into attitudes and perceptions of Europeans towards discrimination, based on different grounds (gender, ethnic origin, religion or beliefs, age, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity). As the last Eurobarometer on this topic, from 2009, this survey also includes several questions on the impact of the crisis on the implementation of anti-discrimination policies and efforts. New questions have been added to cover important or emerging topics, such as the situation of the Roma in Europe, discrimination outside the workplace or the links between discrimination and accessibility. Perceptions on discrimination against transsexual and transgender persons are also explored for the first time.
