Natural Gas is one of the crucial fossil fuels that provides a key energy resource for the energy balance in many countries. Today the reserves and extraction of natural gas in Central and Eastern Europe are inadequate to meet continually growing demand, which necessitates increases in the level of import. Europe now imports over half its natural gas requirement from Russia, Norway and Algeria.



Because of its physical properties, electrical power cannot be accumulated and stored in significant quantities. The generation, transmission, distribution and consumption of electrical power generally takes place simultaneously. As a result, operations companies in this sector, known in many countries as Transmission System Operators (TSOs) have to, for example, continually balance the generation of electrical power with its distribution, based upon the demand from consumers.
