On the 29th of April took place the ENTSOG Online Workshop dedicated to Principles for EU Gas Qualities, handling of Hydrogen and CO2 Transportation. The three pathways of the ENTSOG 2050 Roadmap for Gas Grids were presented to the meeting attendants through a short didactic animation: the Hydrogen pathway, the Methane pathway and the Blends pathway.
This video gives a very clear view on what the gas industry could become in the future in order to meet the decarbonisation objectives set up by the Paris agreement and the European Green Deal.
The GERG priority research topics Hydrogen and Biomethane will play a great role in the transformation of the gas system whatever pathway, or combination of pathways, becomes reality. For this transformation to happen, collaboration between all the different gas industry stakeholders will be essential.
During the workshop were also presented the ENTSOG Roadmap 7 recommendations to Decarbonise Gas Grids. Antonio Gomez, Enagas, and also GERG Transmission and Storage Programme Committee Chairman, moderated the first session on the 6th ENTSOG Recommendation: Principles of EU Gas Qualities and handling of hydrogen. After very productive discussions, the second session, addressing the issue of CO2 transportation, was introduced by Hendrik Pollex from ENTSOG.
