Brussels, 18 January 2019. In relation to the amendment of the Gas Directive, under the Romanian presidency, Eurogas expresses the need for more reflection on the implications for security of supply for the EU.
Eurogas has concerns around the proposal relating to security of supply, investment security, trade relations between the EU and third countries as well as the impact over the sovereignty of Member States to determine their choice between energy sources and the general structure of their energy supply under Article 194(2) TFEU. These should be addressed to ensure that we have the most resilient energy system.
Eurogas supports any legislative amendments that contribute to security of supply and the wellfunctioning of the market in the EU. It is essential however that an impact assessment is conducted prior to tabling any proposals.
Eurogas is a European gas industry association representing 44 companies and associations engaged in gas wholesale, retail and distribution in Europe.
