Earthquakes in the Netherlands Cannot Shake the European Natural Gas Market

The rising number of earthquakes in the northeastern part of the Netherlands has been attributed to the extraction of natural gas from the Groningen field. This has led tostrong opposition to natural gas production from the Dutch population, a matter that is increasingly preoccupying not only policy-makers on the local and provincial levels,but also the central government. In response, the Dutch government ...

European Natural Gas Supply Secure Despite Political Crises

Natural gas is a significant contributor to European energy supply. Hence, the political crisis between Russia and Ukraine increases fears of the consequences of Russia suspending natural gas supplies to Ukraine and the European Union. The last time this had occurred was in the winter of 2009 when Russia and Ukraine disputed about the price of natural gas and transit costs. However, the European Union ...

Structural Shift in Global Natural Gas Markets: Demand Boom in Asia, Supply Shock in the US

The significance of natural gas is on the rise due to the restructuring and decarbonization of energy systems worldwide. Natural gas is widely available and flexible as it can be used in electricity generation, manufacturing, transport, and private households. Compared to other fossil fuels, natural gas produces relatively low carbon dioxide emissions during combustion. For this reason, the natural ...

Neue Gaspipelines und Flüssiggas-Terminals sind in Europa überflüssig

Der Anfang Juli 2020 vom Bundestag beschlossene Kohleausstieg könnte eine größere Rolle für Erdgas im deutschen Energiesystem bedeuten. Doch tatsächlich ist Erdgas nicht klimafreundlicher als Kohle. Vor allem aber droht Europa bei den Erdgasimporten zum Spielfeld des Konflikts zwischen Russland und den USA zu werden. Eine Spirale aus Sanktionen und Gegensanktionen hat sich rund um den Bau der Ostseepipeline ...

No Need for New Natural Gas Pipelines and LNG Terminals in Europe

Natural gas could play an increasing role in the German energy system following the coal exit decided in July 2020 by the German parliament. However, natural gas has no climate benefit compared to coal. What is more, Europe risks to become a battle-ground for the conflict between Russia and the United States. The construction of the Baltic Sea pipeline Nordstream 2 has set in motion a downward spiral ...

The U.S. Coal Sector between Shale Gas and Renewables: Last Resort Coal Exports?

Coal consumption and production have sharply declined in recent years in the U.S., despite political support. Reasons are mostly unfavorable economic conditions for coal, including competition from natural gas and renewables in the power sector, as well as an aging coal- fired power plant fleet. The U.S. Energy Information Administration as well as most models of North American energy markets depict ...

Energy Outlooks Compared: Global and Regional Insights

We compare prominent global energy scenarios of organisations and companies. We supplement the analysis with four own scenarios, which were derived from structured analytic techniques in combination with a numerical global energy and resource market model (Multimod). Our study provides three central contributions: (i) a compact survey of selected outlooks with meta characteristics (conceptual nature, ...
