Edited By Luminita Chivu, Constantin Ciutacu, Valeriu Ioan-Franc and Jean-Vasile Andrei

The book is dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the Romanian Academy. It contains the most valuable 100 papers presented at the International Conference «Economic Scientific Research – Theoretical, Empirical and Practical Approaches» (ESPERA 2015). The event is initiated annually by the National Institute for Economic Research «Costin C. Kirițescu» of the Romanian Academy. ESPERA aim to present and evaluate the economic scientific research portfolio as well as to argue and substantiate development strategies, including European and global best practices.

Hazard Risks and Their Impact on Critical Infrastructures (Case Analysis – Natural Gas Networks of Italy and Romania)

Abstract: The interconnection of critical infrastructures represent one of the pillars of the EU Energy and climate change strategy at the horizon of 2030. The risks associated with these networks should be analyzed based on the geographical distribution of each network by contrast to local objectives such as nuclear power plants or dams. Based on the distributed hazard risks evaluation done for Italy’s regions in case of seismic and landslide and for Romania’s counties in case of flood, draught, snow and freeze and on the risks of mechanical failure with gas escape and ignition, the risk map is determined for each country measured in probable deaths per million inhabitants. These results may provide the needed information for optimizing the allocation of mitigation means and for implementing efficient insurance policies.

Keywords: climate change; risk mapping; critical infrastructures
