Molecules November 2022: To decarbonise the buildings sector, we need a “bottom-up” approach

As work continues in Brussels on the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EBPD), this month Eurogas joined 14 other associations in the energy sector, buildings sector, and groups representing small- and medium-sized businesses, to issue our latest joint paper. In the position paper, we look at the need for a “bottom-up” approach to decarbonising buildings in the EU – one that works for local authorities, consumers, as well as local suppliers and producers. Together we’re pursuing cost-effective ways to create a carbon-neutral buildings sector.

Molecules November 2022: Value chain methane emissions – Eurogas at the European Parliament

Last week Eurogas organised an event in the European Parliament to discuss the EU methane regulation. Hosted by Maria Spyraki, Shadow Rapporteur on the Methane Emissions Regulation, it gathered experts from the sector and policy makers. They discussed the development of a binding framework to tackle emissions, that takes the diverse characteristics of the gas value chain into account.

Our Priorities

Eurogas works to accelerate the energy transition through dialogue and advocacy on optimising the role of gases. We’re focused on the following priorities:

Carbon neutrality

We’re committed to 55% emissions reductions by 2030 and aim to achieve a fully carbon neutral gas system soon after 2045.

Climate leadership

Europe has a chance become a global leader in climate mitigation technologies and to create jobs and wealth.

A Just Transition

Eurogas welcomes the ambition of the European Green Deal and its climate targets. We want to help ensure that no workers, consumers or businesses are left behind.

A market for all gases

In recent years, the EU gas market reached a point where it is one of the most liquid energy markets in the world.

Future-proof infrastructure

Existing gas infrastructure can support the deployment of renewable and low carbon gases.

Sector integration

Eurogas supports smart sector integration including joint gas and electricity planning. Smart sector integration should cover the interaction between energy vectors.

The Twin Energy-Digital Transition

As well as helping to address issues like value chain methane emissions, digitalisation will lead to more active energy customers.
