GasNaturally and our members at EUSEW
Organisers: GIE, German Energy Agency, EUTurbines
Partners: HydrogenEurope, FuelsEurope, WindEurope, Eurogas
Time: Wednesday 19 June, 11.00-12.30
Venue: Résidence Palace, Polak Room
This session will focus on:
- The increasing need for the electricity and gas networks to work together, in a hybrid system, with the objective of decarbonising the economy in a manner that is smart, sustainable and cost effective.
the potential of renewable fuels, renewable gases and feedstocks in the EU energy mix in 2050, including their use, e.g. in power generation;
- How the current European regulatory framework affects renewable fuels, renewable gases and feedstocks contribution to a successful energy transition;
- The crucial principles and standards of a market-based regulatory framework that is needed to achieve long-term planning stability and to ensure level playing field and technological openness, as well as alignment of political measures towards the overall goal of greenhouse gas reduction;
- How all sectors are ready to contribute to the EUs climate neutrality objective and how the gas sector overall and the gas turbines industry are keen to realise it.

A COMPETITIVE FUTURE FOR DECARBONISED EU INDUSTRIES?
Partners: GIE, HydrogenEurope, Eurofer, SolarPower Europe, IFIEC, CEPI
Time: Wednesday 19 June, 14.00-15.30
Venue: European Commission, Charlemagne building, room Jenkins
The session will highlight the need to decarbonise the industrial sectors of the EU in a sustainable manner, while maintaining competitiveness to ensure jobs and growth for Europe’s citizens.
The role of industry in the EU is critical to maintain a balanced economy and also to maintain R&D and innovation. Yet it is one of the biggest carbon emitters. Europe leads in the technology that can abate these emissions through the production of low-carbon and renewable power and gas, which can support EU industry competitiveness for the future.
The session will bring case examples of solutions to the decarbonisation of industry through decarbonised feedstocks. EU industry needs diverse feedstocks and this involves that gas needs to decarbonise/become renewable to continue to be a reliable feedstock for industry. A cross sector of actors from industry and energy will join the session to discuss the challenge of keeping EU industry competitive into the 2050s and beyond as well as the role of energy within that context.
The event is targeted to policymakers, media, NGOs and civil society groups to show the synergies and the potential for improved integration, with low carbon/renewable technologies.

SAILING TOWARDS PARIS: CAN SHIPPING BE ZERO-EMISSIONS?
Organisers: Bellona Europa & GasNaturally
Partners: Norled, Port of Antwerp, Enagas, Carnival Corporation, ABB, Maersk, T&E
Time: Thursday 20 June, 09:00-10:30
Venue: Berlaymont, Cinema Room
The conference will look at current developments on lowering emissions in the short sea as well as the deep sea shipping sectors. According to the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), maritime transport is responsible for about 2.5% of global GHG emissions, and emissions from shipping could grow from between 50% to 250% by 2050.
Our conference will gather policy makers, industry representatives and NGOs. Both –short and deep sea- panels offer the possibility to form a common dialogue where policies and solutions will be discussed, as well as barriers and lessons learnt, for going towards a decarbonised shipping sector.
