Visualising natural gas dependency in the CEE region

One of the goals of the current EU-wide energy strategy is to decrease dependency on external energy imports as with the growing energy consumption the continent’s energy security is in risk. In 2016 Cambridge Econometrics undertook an analysis of oil imports and oil dependency and created a visualisation tool (using Python and D3.js) to show the risk and the challenges that the EU faces in this area. This year CE’s new Budapest office – using reproducible methods and open-source technologies – analysed the natural gas market and created a publicly available tool which shows the evolution of natural gas dependency and the related geopolitical risks. In the presentation we would like to guide you through the process of the research and the creation of the visualisation tool. Finally we will try to give you some insight into what could happen if somebody closes the gas tap…
