The role of renewable gases as an energy carrier towards a low carbon energy future

On 1 July 2021, as part of the UfM Gas Platform 2021 activities, the Observatoire Méditerranéen de l’Energie (OME) organize, through video conferencing and with the support of the European Commission, a workshop on the role of renewable gases as an energy carrier towards a low carbon energy future.

The aim of the workshop is to discuss whether development of renewable gases can have considerable potential, what role they can play towards a sustainable energy future and how. The focus will be on biomethane, biogas, green hydrogen and power to gas. The presentations will focus on the main drivers, opportunities, barriers, uncertainties and relevant challenges. Although the presentations will have varying coverage, from global to regional, the workshop is intended to provide food for thoughts in formulating a possible way forward for the Mediterranean region which is a key element in two reports prepared by the UfM Gas Platform Secretariat.
