Macroeconomic impacts of shale gas extraction in the EU
This study is one of the studies commissioned by the European Commission (EC) to support an impact assessment pursuant to the EC initiative, ‘Environmental, Climate and Energy Assessment Framework to Enable Safe and Secure Unconventional Hydrocarbon Extraction.’ The overall aim of this study is to assess the impacts of different environmental risk management policies for shale gas on the energy system and the economy. More specifically, this study explores the macro-economic impacts of shale gas development under a base case scenario as well as two alternative policy scenarios to manage... environmental risk (one more stringent than the other).
