The EU’s energy sector is profoundly changing. The forthcoming agreement on the “Clean Energy for all Europeans package” will cement the EU’s commitments under the Paris Agreement and substantially decrease the energy sector’s greenhouse gas emissions, bolstering the sector’s potential to become nearly emission-free by 2050.
The proposal is also leading to serious considerations about the future energy system and challenging the current and future role of gas in the energy system.
Is gas a transitional fuel or it should be a destination fuel?
The answer depends on the wide use of the renewable gas and in particular on the broad development of “green power-to-gas”.
The workshop will assess the renewable gas complex and the path to energy sector decarbonisation, analysing the production value-chains, and discussing the scope of policy and regulatory interventions in support of the widespread use of renewable gas.
The workshop also aims to develop a policy conclusion for achieving energy sector decarbonisation quickly and efficiently.
