Eight EU Countries Back Gas During Transition

EU Green Deal: Eight EU States Back ‘Natural Gas’ In Net-Zero Transition (EURACTIV)
Frédéric Simon (May 22): In a joint paper, a group of eight EU nations calls for “combined electricity – gas solutions” in the transition to net-zero emissions by 2050. “A transition based solely on renewable energy sources does not consider the need for a diversified energy mix in the EU. The paper—The Role of Natural Gas in a Climate-Neutral Europe—is signed by Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia. It makes the case for fossil gas in the transition away from coal power, which is a dominant form of electricity in many eastern EU member states. “When replacing solid fossil fuels, natural gas and other gaseous fuels such as bio-methane and decarbonised gases can reduce emissions significantly,” the paper argues.
