The internal and external dimensions of Energy Security

- Gas

In the ongoing debate on EU Security of gas Supply, two dimensions can be distinguished: internal and external.

Energy supply for Europe can be sourced internally (via domestic production) or externally (via imports).

An internally-oriented SoS policy, therefore, focuses by definition on security of the EU demand either via internal sources of supply or with security of ‎transit inside the EU, for both internal and external sources of supply.

On the contrary, external SoS policy deals with external sources of supply and their transit beyond the borders of the EU (Ukraine or Belarus; Morocco or Turkey).
