“Natural gas is well suited for a future where Europe will decarbonise”

In the years ahead of us, the European energy market will be further impacted by energy efficiency measures, heat decarbonisation and the changing nature of electricity generation. Using the virtues of both renewable energy sources and natural gas is the best and fastest way to create a sustainable low-carbon economy.

Natural gas is already providing sector integration: in the long run, cutting-edge gas technologies, such as power-to-gas, fuel cells, and conversion of natural gas to hydrogen accompanied by CCS provide solutions for the low-carbon energy world of the future.

Europe is, and is forecast to be, well supplied with natural gas from indigenous production, piped imports and a growing number of global suppliers of LNG. Russia and Norway are Europe’s main suppliers of natural gas. The increasing global LNG trade will make global gas markets more interdependent and flexible. The European gas market will increasingly be influenced by shifts in the global energy and gas markets, with individual countries less dependent on one supply source.

Knowledge sharing is a valuable component to success. The European Gas Conference intends to provide such knowledge.
