Fluxys Belgium, Gasunie, Gaznat, GRTgaz, Swedegas, and Energinet.dk have welcomed ONTRAS Gastransport as a member of their Green Gas Initiative to achieve a carbon neutral gas supply in 2050.
Members of the Green Gas Initiative believe that gas and gas infrastructure is key to achieve EU carbon objectives at a reasonable cost for society and consumers. They hold that combining biomethane and other regenerative energies with gas in the existing infrastructure is much more cost effective in carbon abatement than many other solutions. Gas infrastructure also enables the transport and storage of energy on a scale unmatched by other energy systems.
The companies believe that it is important to develop the market and infrastructure for CNG and LNG to enable their breakthrough as low carbon alternatives to oil products in transport.
Ralph Bahke, CEO of ONTRAS Gastransport, said: "By joining the cooperation we feel confirmed and strengthened in our ambition to develop our gas infrastructure towards a carbon neutral energy supply. We are proud and pleased that we can now push forward this task together with other European TSOs."
