Up stream - down stream: securing gas supply and demand and the governance of the gas value chain

How can the notions of energy security, geopolitical threats and sustainability be framed in a conceptual framework, to contribute to effective policy making, regulation and strategy development in the gas industry?

Summary

The term energy security is ambiguous, multidimensional and varying over time. It is used in a variety of meanings in political discourses and (quantitative) analytical exercises. This ambiguity calls for an analysis of the understandings and meanings given to energy security and their implications. Generally, energy security is branded as security of supply, or security of energy services. Yet, there are three other crucial perspectives to consider. First, what counts for producing countries and the supply industry is security of demand. Second, concerns for global warming require sustainable energy systems, altering the basic determinants on the demand side of the current energy systems. Third, energy security, system reliability and crisis management can only be provided by considering and coordinating the technical, economic and institutional facets of energy supply, transport and end-use, including the roles of public and private actors. As drivers for the governance of the gas system, these three perspectives cannot be considered independently. This project with explore how these perspectives overlap and interact in policy and strategy making.
