Setting the EU on track for climate neutrality: The role of gas infrastructure

To successfully achieve climate neutrality by 2050, the EU needs to establish an integrated energy infrastructure. The European Commission underlined in its recent strategies that it’s essential to address decarbonisation with a holistic approach, tackling for instance energy together with the so-called “hard-to-abate” sectors. To become future-proofed, it is argued that today’s regulatory framework must be revised and while doing so, the multiple specificities of the EU regions should be taken into consideration.

We are on the eve of an energy revolution. As highlighted by the recent report of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the production of low-carbon and renewable gases is expected to substantially increase in the coming decades, leading our energy system to drastically evolve. But how do we transport and store these molecules?

The EU gas infrastructure states they offer sustainable and cost-effective solutions in transmission, storage and LNG terminals. As explained by Executive Vice-President Frans Timmermans, it is a valuable asset for the development of the hydrogen value chain and market across EU regions. Aware that innovation will be one of the driving forces of the energy transition, gas operators are taking action in initiating numerous innovative projects in Europe.
