This supposes a renewed impetus towards renewable energies in the medium term and a costly short-term readjustment of suppliers, apart from being more polluting and harmful when redirecting towards liquefied natural gas ( LNG ) extracted with hydraulic Last Database fracturing methods ( fracking ). It will therefore be necessary to consider to what extent this impetus for renewable energies is confirmed, so that the Last Database imperatives of energy security do not overshadow the decarbonisation objectives. Nor can the use of energy Last Database policy by the eu be disregardedas an active tool of external influence nor the harmful effects it may have on third countries, and therefore in aggregate. With the rise in natural gas prices caused by the war in Ukraine, a renewed Last Database commitment to coal is being seen, as it is a cheaper resource, although less sustainable.
