In this report we put the whole enery system into our perspective and derive strategies with regard to five different energy price scenarios. A fundamental investment strategy is that which is consistent with the minimum expected cost (called Strategy A). Using strategy A as a point of reference, it is illustrated how, to which extent and at what costs insurance undertaking can form an energy system less vulnerable (risk-exposed) to the development of energy prices. A specific formation of the system at lower levels (i.e. within communities, companies and households) which - in the aggregate - corresponds to any of the investment strategies B-F, will imply a less volnerable, or risk-exposed energy system. The administration may lay down the guiding principles for such a formation through an appropriate balancing of various policy measure (taxation, legislation, subsidies, to investments and R&D etc.) and through its information and forecasting activities.
