Gas represents a pivotal element of the European energy
architecture. New elements such as the evolution of the EU
Energy Union, the international climate agreement reached at
COP-21, the EU-Russia gas relations in the aftermath of the
Ukraine crisis and the supply potential emerging in the Eastern
Mediterranean, are rapidly reshaping the European gas markets.
This book seeks to provide an insight on these developments, with the ultimate aim of contributing to the current European gas debate by providing a balancing act between two issues, decarbonisation of the European energy system and security of gas supply, that are usually conceived as different and unmatched but that represent, in reality, the two sides of the same coin.
