We are the leading natural gas distributors in France, Italy, Ireland, Spain, Portugal and Romania. Together, we represent 27.4 million customers in Europe (around 20% of the European market). Gas distributors are responsible for operating the gas distribution network, ensuring its maintenance, and its development. We are responsible for safely distributing natural and renewable gas to consumers.
Provide expertise with regards to decarbonisation policies
Contribute to the development of Gas Market Design
Raise the voice of Gas-only DSOs in the European Debate
Unlock the potential of renewable gas and gas grids
Biomethane makes natural gas renewable
Biomethane should be clearly incentivized in reaching the EU’s renewable energy objectives. Other renewable gas such as hydrogen need to be supported.
NGV improves air quality
Natural gas is a sustainable alternative fuel for transport.
Gas networks to distribute and store renewable energies already exist and are very flexible
They offer a cost effective solution to a more sustainable Europe. Innovative gas solutions and existing gas distribution infrastructure must be better incorporated in the European decarbonization vision.
Gas offers efficient and affordable technological solutions
The introduction of renewable gas objectives would accelerate the greening of the gas network with concrete impacts on several sectors (heating, cooling, and transports).
