RES Policy Portfolios | RES Financial Issues

Against the backdrop of the recent geopolitical developments in Ukraine, security of energy supplies – foremost supply of natural gas – in the EU has regained top priority on the EU energy policy agenda. This fact-finding paper seeks to identify recent trends in natural gas use and import dependencies in 12 rather vulnerable EU Member States (MSs) and to analyse the potential to reduce insecurity of external gas supplies of these countries in the short and longer term up to 2030. In doing so, the potential contribution of renewables and energy efficiency to reduce gas import dependency will be assessed.
