Panel: How can gas networks prepare to support the decarbonisation of transport? 13 October

Andy will be chairing ENIC's plenary Green Transportation session and will also be taking part in a live discussion, looking at crucial issues around the decarbonisation of mobility, including: 

  • Facilitating the large-scale rollout of refuelling sites by 2030
  • Gas network operators’ role in engaging with fuelling station operators on new sites and connection options
  • Plans for piloting large-scale purification of hydrogen from the grid to meet transport fuel standards
  • Demonstrating and scaling up the hydrogen fuel supply chain
  • Commercial models and challenges: how can we ensure a continued competitive business case for gas powered fleets?
