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

This workshop will present results from the case study on Projects of Common Interest (PCI) and gas producers pricing strategy. Achieving deep decarbonisation policies for the energy system requires modifications to Europe’s gas network. Strengthening and diversifying the connections to major suppliers as well as investing in liquid natural gas (LNG) capacity is instrumental to reduce supply risks. 

Several PCIs are 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 talks tackle the following research 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?
