Event Description

On 14 June Massimiliano Salini and Algirdas Saudargas, Members of the European Parliament, will host a workshop-debate on the role played by gas in providing affordable and efficient heating and cooling for tens of millions of EU consumers.

In conjunction with the publication of the European Commission’s Heating & Cooling Strategy and the ongoing discussion at the European Parliament, speakers will discuss the potential opportunities offered by the latest gas technologies for heating and cooling. The workshop will feature short and specific presentations to leave enough time for discussion and Q&A with participants. Focus will be on the energy/cost savings these technologies offer and related emission reductions. Presentations will showcase innovation in gas in heating and cooling, including energy efficiency and complementarity with renewables, and in particular the applications’ adaptability to and interoperability with national energy mixes and infrastructures. Attention will be paid to consumers, including the existing financial instruments for them to finance retrofitting of boilers for heating homes or other available gas technologies for domestic use.

This event is jointly organized by Eurogas and GasNaturally.  We are proud to take part in this year's EU Energy Days.
