  Add to Calendar 2020-10-23 10:00 2020-10-23 11:00 Europe/Paris Addressing Methane Emissions in the Context of Energy System Integration: What Climate Value for Gas?

Addressing methane emissions in the context of energy system integration is a joint webinar organised by the Florence School of Regulation and the Environmental Defense Fund.

The event will address the following questions:

  • How could the reduction of methane emissions contribute to the achievement of the European Green Deal and Paris Agreement objectives?
  • How to provide clear information to the consumers on the methane-intensity of gas they consume, including from imports?
  • Should methane emissions performance standards be used to give clear signals to investors both through the sustainable finance taxonomy and through mandatory disclosure under the Non-Financial Reporting Directive?
  • How to ensure that the supply of low-carbon and renewable gases do not lead to the increase in the domestic EU methane emissions?
  • Whether and how to incorporate the methane emission abatement actions into the revision of the TEN-E Regulation?
  • How to create the right incentives for the EU network companies to reduce methane emissions in the distribution segment?

The webinar will be moderated by prof. Andris Piebalgs, Florence School of Regulation and former EU Commissioner for Energy. A Q&A session with the audience will follow.
