SET-Nav Final Policy Event

The Future of Gas in an Electrifying Europe

20 March 2018, CEPS, Brussels, Belgium 

The SET-Nav Future of Gas in an Electrifying Europe meeting, part of the SET-Nav Final Policy Event in Brussels was successfully organised on the 20th March 2019.

The event was organised by the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS). The workshop brought together European and national stakeholders to discuss the role of gas in the future European energy mix. The event united and put to the test different perspectives on the future of gas, and tested the results and policy recommendations developed as part of the SET-Nav project. Several different scenarios were up for discussion, including moderate electrification, hydrogen, strong gasification, and renewable gas.
