Eurogas welcomes the European Commission’s ambition to deploy a harmonised EU certification system to ensure the role of carbon removals solutions, both nature-based and technology-based, necessary to contribute to achieving the EU climate targets.
JOINT LETTER | On the sidelines of the CERAWeek conference in Houston, Texas, senior executives of our organizations met with representatives of G7 nations to discuss the unique and vital role of natural gas in meeting shared energy security and climate objectives…
Emissions from buildings are much harder to abate than many think. The type of energy efficiency measures that are possible depend on many factors, such as climatic zones, local energy…
The Electricity Market Design reform is an opportunity to future-proof the regulatory framework to enable the decarbonisation of the European economy. Indeed, the European answer
In this open joint letter to the European Commission, Eurogas presents the association’s concerns on the Union Database (UDB) for tracing gaseous and liquid transport fuels, under the recast Renewable Energy Directive.
Eurogas welcomes the European Commission’s ambition on CO2 emissions reductions from new heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs), in line with the …
Annex B: Biomethane within the newly drafted ‘Land Sector and Removals Guidance’ is already having an enormous impact on the global biogas sector — inhibiting
The Russian invasion of Ukraine dramatically changed the economic and social situation in Europe, with costs-of-living rising sharply in the Union also due to increasing energy prices. Unprecedented measures have been taken at EU and at national level to support consumers, with energy-specific measures and measures based on the existing consumer protection and social policy framework at Union and national levels.
Joint Statement on the REDII Delegated Act Art. 28 (5): the Importance of Industrial CCU for Reaching Climate Neutrality
The signatories represent a wide range of industrial sectors for which Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) is a core technology to help reach their sustainability and climate neutrality targets. The undersigned fully support the Commission’s ambitious climate targets. But reaching those targets including RFNBOs sub-quotas from the REPowerEU Plan, European Hydrogen Strategy, revision of the Renewable Energy Directive, ReFuelEU Aviation or discussed in FuelEU Maritime will require legal certainty for investments and support for the scale-up of renewable hydrogen, its derivatives such as synthetic fuels, and underlying technologies such as CCU.
The co-signatory organisations wish to raise serious concerns to the European Commission about the new draft “Land Sector and Removals Guidance” under development within the GHG Protocol (GHGP) Standard. The new draft Guidance prevents corporate users from using market-based instruments to report reduced GHG emissions from biomethane consumption and as a result can hurt the European Union’s efforts to develop 35 bcm of domestic biomethane production by 2030.
Joint paper | Energy Performance of Buildings Directive: a bottom-up approach for integrated system efficiency
As work continues in Brussels on the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, Eurogas has joined 14 other associations in the energy sector, buildings sector, and SME groups, to issue our latest joint paper.
How to achieve an impactful regulation on methane emissions: joint statement by European gas Distribution System Operators
The undersigned organisations jointly represent European Gas Distribution System Operators (DSOs). We are fully committed to reducing methane emissions and we support an ambitious and binding Regulation. Compared to the prescriptive proposal from the European Commission, we would have favoured a Regulation that mandates outcomes, but leaves flexibility to operators on how to achieve them. Yet, we understand the rationale for the approach taken by the Commission. This must, however, take into account the diverse characteristics of the different parts of the gas value chain: production, transmission, storage, and distribution.
