Following the January 2009 gas crisis, diversification of gas supplies and the identification of additional supply sources have become a strategic priority for the EU.
With the extraordinary EU summit in May, dedicated to energy, EU leaders will have to be well prepared to discuss the bloc’s energy relations in the long-term.
What were the main decisions at the level of head of state and government, and how to translate them in practice? What role for the EU Commission, what role for member states, what role for business?
Is gas a driver for Europe’s economy today and tomorrow? Is diversification of supplies possible, is it cost-effective, or is it just a political whim?
Will there be enough market for more gas? Is it the right time to invest? Are investors aware of the opportunities?
