The ‘Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas Market’ Package: a solid foundation for the development of competitive and liquid markets in renewable and low-carbon gases

Europex welcomes the Commission’s package of legislative proposals to revise the Gas Directive and Regulation, as well as the new rules to tackle methane leakage, published today. We also welcome the revision of the Gas Security of Supply Regulation to ensure it is fully adapted to a decarbonising gas sector. The new measures help to ensure that the gas regulatory framework is fit for purpose for the uptake of renewable and low-carbon gases, whilst retaining the core benefits of the Internal Energy Market. Open, competitive energy markets will play a fundamental role in driving the energy transition and delivering the 55% reduction in GHG emissions by 2030 and the objective of climate neutrality in 2050.
