Founded in 1990, Eurogas is the prime interlocutor for energy policy, environmental and other issues related to the represented sector.
Gas is indispensable to establish a cost-efficient and sustainable low-carbon energy system. In the short and medium term, a switch to natural gas from coal and oil in power generation, transport and heating greatly reduces emissions of carbon dioxide and other pollutants. In the long term the gas network can increasingly carry renewable gas, e.g. biomethane as well as hydrogen and synthetic gas produced from excess electricity generated by variable renewable sources, such as wind and sun.
