2023 Energy Security Scoreboard Report (pilot edition)
Due to the Russian aggression against Ukraine and its economic effects on wider Europe, energy security has become a priority for both the EU members and Contracting Parties of the Energy Community. Consequently, the need for a proper policy cycle, including assessment, planning, implementation, and monitoring of energy security-related matters, increased significantly.
Having this in mind, DiXi Group together with international partners and with the support of the Black Sea Trust and the European Union developed the pilot edition of the Energy Security Scoreboard. The Scoreboard is an analytical tool that addresses one yet important aspect of energy security – the institutional and strategic preparedness of countries to indicate, assess, mitigate, prevent, and withstand energy security risks while remaining energy resilient and sustainable. The preparedness is assessed against best practices of energy security policy in the EU, enshrined in acquis. Additionally, it contains some infrastructural indicators essential for addressing energy crises (e.g., interconnectivity). The study covers four countries – three Energy Community Contracting Parties (Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine) and one EU member state (Romania) as a benchmark.
The Scoreboard consists of 40 indicators, encompasses 3 energy markets and 5 categories reflecting the main stages of policy-making in energy security – from risk assessment to reporting.
