SES- Security Of Energy Systems
Institute for Energy
The SES Action will be a new action within the framework of the new Energy Security Unit. The priority of the Action for this first year of activity will consist in the development of internal competences on selected aspects of the multidimensional topic of energy security and in starting to set up and/or to familiarize with a pool of quantitative tools especially useful to support the customers DGs in their policy needs.
In practice, the Action will focus on the development of a GIS (Geographical Information System) based database for the EU energy systems infrastructures and of a set of quantitative models dealing with the energy systems on an EU scale. Furthermore, methodological tools for assessing carefully selected specific aspects of energy security, namely infrastructure risk assessment and external cost evaluation, will be also acquired in order to complete the investigation of the energy security concept initiated by the SOS action.
