10% binding target for renewable gas and future-proof gas infrastructure crucial to achieve cost efficient decarbonisation

22 April 2020 New study describes gas decarbonisation pathways from 2020 to 2050 and identifies the required investments to scale-up hydrogen and biomethane. Large scale production of biomethane and green and blue hydrogen – transported, stored and distributed through existing gas infrastructure – can help achieve 55% emission reduction by 2030 in a smart combination…

Gas for Climate hosts Industry Workshop on the 21st of February

On the 21st of February the Gas for Climate consortium will organize a workshop in Brussels to discuss the draft findings of our new study, by Navigant ‘a Guidehouse company’, with a range of industry stakeholders. The new study describes Pathway scenarios to scale up the deployment of biomethane and hydrogen in industry, electricity production,…

Gas for Climate is expanding and supports the European Green Deal

Release date: 12 December 2019 Gas for Climate welcomes the EU’s increased ambition to fight climate change Consortium now designing pathways to scale-up renewable gas towards 2050 ONTRAS and Energinet have joined the Gas for Climate consortium   Gas for Climate, the future oriented gas sector initiative that supports full decarbonisation of the energy system by…

Scaling up renewable gas production in Europe will create at least 600,000 direct jobs by 2050

Report published today shows that scaling up renewable gases can create 1.7 million to 2.4 million jobs by 2050, of which 600,000 to 850,000 direct jobs Employment opportunities result from investments in biomethane and hydrogen production facilities and include many rural jobs and high-skilled positions Most of these jobs are stable European jobs that cannot be…

Role of the existing gas infrastructure in the future energy system

On 28 November 2018 the Commission published the European vision on how to achieve a climate neutral economy by 2050. Gas for Climate is encouraged to see that the EU Commission shares many findings with the consortium, including the increasing role for hydrogen and biomethane in buildings, industry and heavy transport as well as the…
