Second "Energy Market" Barometer by Grenoble Ecole de Management

According to this second Energy Market barometer, ¾ of interviewed experts are unsure of Russia's reliability as the primary supplier of natural gas in Europe due to the conflict in Ukraine. Despite this, only half of the experts believe the security of France's supply to have deteriorated. However, when asked about Europe, this concern increases to 81% of experts.

When asked about the government's focus on energy efficiency, 61% believe such actions to be justified. In terms of the French energy market, this transformation will negatively impact traditional energy providers, but be beneficial to technology suppliers and the economy as a whole. Finally, the majority of experts believe that electricity, gas, oil and coal prices will remain relatively stable over the next six months, but should increase over the next five years (excepting coal).
