The Impact of the EU Methane Strategy on the Natural Gas Market

Dates:
  • Fri 04 Dec 2020 14.00 - 15.30
  Add to Calendar 2020-12-04 14:00 2020-12-04 15:30 Europe/Paris The Impact of the EU Methane Strategy on the Natural Gas Market

This webinar is the second joint event organised by the Florence School of Regulation and the Environmental Defense Fund.

The question leading the second online event is how to incentivise the methane emissions reductions from the whole natural gas value chain.

Among the issues to be discussed:

  • Considering that less that 25% of methane emissions in the EU’s gas supply chain occur domestically and 80% of volumes consumed in the EU are sold through long-term contracts with 3rd country suppliers, is a Methane Supply Index fit for purpose? What should be the starting point and key assumptions around addressing emissions associated with imports?
  • Could we expect that in the coming years the natural gas price will reflect environmental footprint?
  • How to verify the credibility of GHG intensity declarations submitted by the natural gas importers and how to address likely discrepancies with what is reported in the inventories according to the UNFCCC template?

What level of governance can be most effective in determining the equivalency of regulations adopted in different jurisdictions?
