This chapter underlines one of the exacerbating factors in energy security, which is complex systems of supply. It discusses that energy security in the supply of electricity, and natural gas particularly, demands management of a complex system; and as del Guayo points out, this has implications for the drafting and interpretation of energy legislation. It notes that interactions between the different parts of the system must be anticipated, and that the system as a whole may be different from the sum of its parts. It indicates four main kinds of energy security concerns — security of supply, security of demand, reliability of energy supply, and physical security of energy installations and personnel. It also explains the role of law in energy security.

Keywords:   electricity supply, natural gas, del Guayo, security of supply, security of demand, energy supply reliability, physical security, energy installations, personnel
