Image gas briefing

The Russian invasion of Ukraine changes the perspective on the gas package and even further underlines the need to move away from fossil gas.

This NGO briefing analyses the European Commission’s proposals for a regulation and a directive “revising common rules for the internal markets in renewable, natural gases and in hydrogen” (referred hereafter as the “gas package”). It sets out recommendations for how the gas package can contribute to greenhouse gas emission reductions in line with achieving the Paris Agreement, to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C, ensuring air quality improvements and affordable energy that European citizens want.
