The causes of this lack of security of the energy supply are known: the current Ukrainian crisis, low stocks of natural gas in the EU at the beginning of the winter period, the reduction of domestic production in some EU member states (e.g. the Netherlands), the booming Asian demand after the COVID pandemic.
