COGEN Europe is pleased to announce its upcoming Annual Conference & Dinner 2012.
The European Gas Policy Forum 2012
The debate around shale gas development in Europe remains in its infancy, however it is seen by many as a “game-changer” in terms of energy security, tackling climate change and in facilitating the development of renewables (as a best placed partner). However figures quoting actual shale gas reserves continue to be subject to claim and counter claim, while politically, no common approach is in place, or perhaps likely.
- Should shale gas be regulated at EU-level or is the current approach appropriate?
- What might future regulation, at both member state and EU-level look like?
- Will shale gas revolutionise the energy security situation in Europe and which countries offer the most potential?
- What role will Europe play in the global development of shale and how will such development affect European energy prices and other energy resources?
- Will shale open up further opportunities for gas to be “twinned” with renewables in the drive for a low carbon future?
- Could Europe lead the way in delivering environmentally conscious shale gas development?
co-organized by EPIA and ESTIF
On behalf of MEP Boguslaw Sonik, the rapporteur on "Environmental impacts of shale gas extraction" we have the pleasure to invite you to a presentation by The International Energy Agency of the report on the "Golden Rules for a Golden Age of Gas".

Securing Europe‘s Raw Material Supply in the Context of Resource Efficiency and EU Industry Policy
There is no energy- and resource efficiency, no climate protection, no future technologies for our modern
world without the use of non-ferrous metals.
As a result of the Fukushima nuclear disaster Germany decided to phase out nuclear power by 2022. 8 out of 17 nuclear power stations have already been shut down permanently. Renewable energies will be expanded massively and will bear the brunt of future power generation.
