The European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is the biggest annual event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe and comprises a series of activities aimed at building a secure energy future for Europe.
On Thursday 29 September 2022, CERRE Research Fellow Catherine Banet will join the event “The potential of renewable gases to support the energy transition and guarantee security of supply” organised in partnership with CERRE, CEER, IRENA, Florence School of Regulation and Future Energy Leaders Portugal.
How can policy initiatives foster the development of the renewable gas industry across the EU, factoring in the objectives of net-zero, affordability for consumers, security of supply and gas free of political risk?
The panellists will discuss the transformational potential renewable gases, such as green hydrogen and biomethane, have in the medium run for our energy system as well as the infrastructure and market structures that are required. Against the background of the Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas Package and the REPowerEU Plan, the session highlights different models and use cases at European and national level, and examines how this can contribute to security of supply and net-zero objectives. The main question posed is which steps we can take to support the sustainable development of new renewable gas industries and markets, with the end goal of diversifying Europe’s energy supplies and enabling a fair energy transition for all Europeans.
