Dear members, peers, and friends,
There is no doubt this has been an exceptional year, that has challenged us all in different ways. But as the saying goes, where there is challenge there is opportunity.
This is the last Eurogas Molecules newsletter for 2020 and I am proud to reflect on the accomplishments of the association this year.
We have been delighted to welcome six new members to our association. We have hosted 15 online events since April, welcoming over two thousand guests to our discussions, and participated in many others. We have launched our study, A Pathway to 2050: The Role of Gas, demonstrating the significant savings that can be made by using gas in key areas of the economy to meet the EU decarbonisation targets.
For the last few weeks we have been running a series of Gas Tech Talks, demonstrating the exciting and innovative clean gas technologies being designed and deployed in Europe. With the right support, these can develop a whole new industry, providing jobs in the EU and export opportunities across the world.
This has only been possible through the hard work of the team in Brussels, so I thank each of them for that, as well as the ongoing commitment of our members. Our members support, dedication and trust allow the Eurogas Secretariat to participate in the conversations at the very core of European energy policy, and the future of Europe’s climate legislation.
I hope you enjoy this issue of Molecules. It offers a brief insight into just some of the work we have accomplished in the last four weeks, as well as the more personal message from the team to all of you at the end of this year.
Thank you for joining us, and we look forward to our ongoing relationship in 2021.
Stay well, my sincere greetings of the season and let us hope for a great new year!
