Climate change requires urgent action and the ultimate challenge is to carry out the required transition towards a greener future at affordable cost for EU citizens and in line with EU energy security perspectives. The availability of well-developed gas networks in Europe and the complementary function of renewable gases and natural gas vis-à-vis other energy forms make gas and gas infrastructure well positioned to meet this challenge.
The members of the Green Gas Initiative have signed a joint declaration and committed themselves to the main objective of contributing to a CO 2-neutral gas supply by 2050. This common goal can be realised by working on a number of options. The topics to be tackled in the first place will be biomethane, power to gas and gas as a fuel in road and maritime transport.
