Event Description

With the ongoing debate on the importance of powerfuels for the European energy transition, a key requirement for market development is to define clear sustainability standards. The RED II provides some indication, but also mentions their exact meaning may not be defined until the end of 2021.
Our Brussels Brief will gather the relevant stakeholders to discuss the challenges of defining sustainability standards for powerfuels. So far Laurent Schmitt (ENTSO-E), Nils Aldag (Sunfire), Agnes Herdick (Uniper) and Dr. Chris Malins (Cerulogy) have been confirmed as speakers.
It will also aim to identify consensus along with open questions in this matter. This discussion is vital for the development of commercially viable gaseous and liquid energy carriers and feedstocks being produced from renewable electricity with power-to-x technologies.
To ensure that your perspective is counted, we cordially invite you to actively participate in this event.
