VIDEO: Is gas the victim of geopolitics?

Europe’s efforts to phase out coal for electrification, while the gas demand remains uncertain are driven by various international political and economic developments in the energy sector.


Clingendael International Energy Programme’s researcher Luca Franza, comments that the politicization of gas springs out as an issue, but that the politicization issue is also slightly overinflated.

Franza: “The expectation is that gas prices will go down again. Competitiveness is something we see globally. Gas also have some strong environmental credentials as opposed to other fossil fuels. What may limit the industry’s embrace of gas will be geopolitics.”

Clingendael International Energy Programme current research and activities revolve around the issues of the geo-political and geo-economic consequences of changing supply and demand patterns in energy, in particular, oil and natural gas, and the development of European energy markets and energy policy-making against the background of international energy market developments and climate change policies.

CIEP was launched in 2001 with support from public and private institutions. It contributes to the public debate on international political and economic developments in the energy sector (oil, gas and electricity). CIEP contributions include research, events, publications, comments, lectures and training.
