The LICD is an HHI indicator and ranges from 0 to 10,000. The lower the value, the better the diversification is. Where a country would have two borders the LICD cannot be lower than 5,000, and for a country having three borders the LICD cannot be lower than 3,333. See Annex D for more detailed information about the indicator’s formula.
Results are given by market zone. Thus, Finland, Estonia and Latvia are grouped into a single zone and the results are therefore identical for these three countries. Also, Denmark and Sweden are grouped in one zone and therefore the results are identical for these two countries.
Table 4.1 gives the number of interconnections with neighbouring countries (LNG here is considering as a country) with which a specific country as at least an entry capacity, per country and infrastructure level for the year 2040. The number of interconnections is similar for the all the years (2025, 2030 and 2040). However, Poland, Hungary and Bulgaria increase their number of interconnections between 2025 and 2030 in Advanced infrastructure level and Greece increases its number of interconnections between 2025 and 2030 in PCI infrastructure level.
