Short­-term flexibility of the European gas infrastructurePublished: 1 of December, 2014

In our short piece, we evaluate the potential flexibility of the European gas infrastructure. First, we will first give a bird’s eye view on the total available flexibility measures. This simple review gives us the possibility to narrow down the scope of our inquiry and focus only on the most important sectors. Second, we refine the flexibility options by taking network constraints into account and show the effect of reverse flow possibilities on crisis management as well. Third, we present a more thorough analysis of fuel switching in the power generation sector. Our analyses will be based on REKK’s European Gas Market Model (EGMM) and European Electricity Market Model (EEMM).
