Millions of EU money are spent to finance priority gas projects, so-called PCIs, supposed to significantly contribute to market integration, sustainability, diversification and security of supply.
Based on 3 example pipelines – MidCat, TAP and GAA – we’ll analyse the real interests behind these projects.
Local and global resistances against gas infrastructure plans grow, and they ask questions : How much energy do we really need and how can we reduce our energy consumption and fossil fuel dependence ? What about devastating social, economic & climate impacts of gas extraction?
