Combining Energy Networks: The Impact of Europe's Natural Gas Network on Electricity Markets until 2050

By Jan Abrell, Clemens Gerbaulet, Franziska Holz, Casimir Lorenz and Hannes Weigt


The interdependence of electricity and natural gas is becoming a major energy policy and regulatory issue in all jurisdictions around the world. The increased role of gas fired plants in renewable-based electricity markets and the dependence on gas imports make this issue particular striking for the European energy market. In this paper we provide a comprehensive combined analysis of electricity and natural gas infrastructure with an applied focus. We analyze different scenarios of the long-term European decarbonization pathways sketched out by the Energy Roadmap 2050, and identify criteria related to electricity and/or natural gas infrastructure and the interrelation between both markets
