Shale Fever: Replicating the US gas revolution in the EU?

Roderick Kefferpütz

The enthusiasm for shale gas is now spreading beyond the borders of the United States, entering national discourses in the European Union where it is seen to provide energy independence and jobs, as well as cheaper and more environmentally-friendly fuel. This paper provides a balanced and concise overview of the development of and concerns surrounding shale gas in the United States, and explores the extent to which this success story could be replicated in the European Union.
