Security of gas supply – What role for gas infrastructure?
Thursday 30 June 2022 | 12:30 – 14:00 CET
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has led to new geopolitical and energy market realities. It required the EU to dramatically accelerate its clean energy transition while also looking for solutions to increase its energy independence.
In response to these hardships, the European Commission presented the REPowerEU Plan. The plan aims to rapidly reduce dependence on Russian fossil fuels, fast forward the green transition, and increase the resilience of the EU-wide energy system. The watchwords are diversifying, saving, and accelerating clean energy
Join this EURACTIV Hybrid Conference where stakeholders will discuss the policy tools that can strengthen EU security of supply. Questions to be addressed include:
Part of the questions we will take:
- How can gas supplies be secured in the most efficient and sustainable way, while at the same time ensuring the protection of EU citizens and industries? Is a holistic approach achievable?
- What is the role of gas infrastructure? Can gas infrastructure operators connect Europe to the global market?
- What solutions exist to transport and store renewables and low-carbon molecules over long distances with the existing and future LNG, underground storage and transmission facilities?
