Natural Gas: The Winter Crisis of Europe

Natural gas is probably best known to consumers for its domestic uses of heating, cooking and cooling, with residential use accounting for around 22% of overall natural gas consumption. Its demand has been on the rise the past decades, which highlights the central role that natural gas has in today’s global energy market. The reason behind its popularity is evident: it is a very good source of electricity supply, it is defined by easy storability, and it produces low carbon emissions.
