Gas represents a pivotal element of the Europeanenergy architecture. New elements such as theevolution of the EU Energy Union, the internationalclimate agreement reached at COP-21, the EURussiagas relations in the aftermath of the Ukrainecrisis and the supply potential emerging in theEastern Mediterranean, are rapidly reshaping theEuropean gas markets. This book seeks to providean insight into these developments, with theultimate aim of contributing to the current Europeangas debate by providing a balancing act between twoissues, decarbonisation of the European energysystem and security of gas supply, that are usuallyconceived as different and unmatched but thatrepresent, in reality, the two sides of the same coin.
