Renewable Gases, Hydrogen and Power-to-gas,

Dates:
  • Mon 29 Jun 2020 09.07 - 11.30
  Add to Calendar 2020-06-29 9:07 2020-06-29 11:30 Europe/Paris Renewable Gases, Hydrogen and Power-to-gas,

EU Sustainable Energy Week

From 22 to 26 June 2020, the EU Sustainable Energy Week will bring together energy stakeholders and enthusiasts online to discuss the way forward for green recovery and growth.

Renewable gases, hydrogen, and power-to-gas

The Florence School of Regulation is pleased to host one of the sessions from the title: Understanding renewable gases, hydrogen and power-to-gas: empowering consumers to make informed choices . You are all invited to join us and debate! The webinar will be introduced by the FSR Director, Jean-Michel Glachant. Ilaria Conti, Head of FSR Gas, will set the scene introducing the topic of taxonomy for the so-called green gases .

Background

Decarbonising the EU’s energy system and ramping up our renewable energy use are critical to reach our climate objectives. The route to decarbonisation can take many forms, though biogas, biomethane and clean hydrogen are likely to feature in most of the pathways. The smart integration of renewables, energy efficiency and all possible sustainable solutions across sectors will help to achieve a cost-efficient decarbonisation and ensure/improve the reliability and flexibility of the energy systems.

European consumers have a powerful role to play in driving this transformation forward and are becoming increasingly careful about what and how they consume, also showing a strong support for energy choices that are less carbon intensive. Consumer engagement can make a real difference in this process, but this requires more transparent information about carbon and environmental footprints of products and services available on the market. Fully understanding the costs and potential of the different (emerging) technologies will be essential to make informed choices about more sustainable alternatives and ultimately benefit from the clean energy transition.
