Eurogas and GIE are firmly committed to ensure an efficient, effective, and just transition. We believe that a mix of gaseous energy and other heating solutions will be needed to ensure the successful and cost-effective decarbonisation of the building sector.
Our operators are committed to pursuing and intensifying their contribution to reducing emissions. We understand the need for such a Regulation and support the deployment of an appropriate and cost-effective action plan. We welcome the proposal of the European Commission.
Both the Communication on More Affordable, Sustainable and Secure Energy and the Draft Regulation on Security of Supply make reference to joint purchasing of gaseous fuels: natural gas, LNG and hydrogen. The current combination of high prices in the gas wholesale market and the war in Ukraine have driven political attention on to the issue of gas purchasing.
