Europe’s gas infrastructure needs towards 2050: which projects of common interest should be prioritised?28 of September, 2017 - SET-Nav Topical Workshop

Several case studies are assessed as part of SET-Nav project, defined to deal with policy related questions of technology development in specific fields.

In this workshop, a list of projects of common interest is discussed and analysed by using different modelling approaches. Outputs include a top down priority list of PCIs in order to avoid spending on underutilised or stranded infrastructure as well as recommendations for optimal use of gas networks and measurements of country-specific price vulnerability against gas producers’ market power. The research aims to answer the following questions:

  • What will be Europe’s gas infrastructure needs?
  • What are the gas infrastructure projects that should be prioritised?
  • How vulnerable will Europe be to the suppliers’ pricing strategy?
