Sectorial integration: a necessary path to decarbonisation – GasNaturally at the EU Energy Summit

Andrea Gerini, Secretary General of NGVA represented the GasNaturally partnership in his role of the Chair the Steering Committee at the EU Energy Summit organised by European Business Summit on 5 March.

The panel debate was moderated by Maximo Miccinilli (CERRE) and featured an excellent line-up of speakers from across the industry and the EU institutions (see here)

Andrea Gerini started by outlining  the three dimensions of sustainability: the environmental one - where decarbonisation and air quality are our main goal; the economical one - where affordability, cost-effectiveness and industry competitiveness come to the fore; and the social dimension – where the security of supply, access to energy and, importantly, the customer acceptance and behaviour are the key aspects.

The discussion centred around key themes of relevance for each represented industry (paper, g-mobility, CNG infrastructure) and covered the utilisation of bioCNG and bioLNG as quick starter for the decarbonisation process for road transport.
