Enagás, as a key player for the security of supply in Spain and Europe, was once again present at Gastech, the world’s largest exhibition and conference on natural gas, LNG, hydrogen and low-carbon solutions, which took place from 5-8 September in Milan (Italy).
Enagás CEO Arturo Gonzalo took part in a strategic panel on European energy security on the first day, together with the CEOs of some of the main TSOs (Transmission System Operators) in the European Union: Maria Rita Galli (DESFA), Thierry Trouvé (GRTgaz), Stefano Venier (Snam), Dominique Mockly (Teréga), Rodrigo Costa (REN) and Pascal De Buck (Fluxys).
In his speech, Arturo Gonzalo said that “now is the time for collaboration and solidarity in Europe. The present crisis will speed up decarbonisation and TSOs have a key role to play in this process, as well as in ensuring security of supply.” “In addition, a European regulatory framework will be essential for the development of renewable gases,” he said.
Two key green hydrogen projects
Furthermore, the company took part in two technical conferences unveiling two green hydrogen projects. Carlos Navas, Manager of Hydrogen Project Management in Enagás Renovable, presented Green Hysland, a European initiative in which Enagás participates and leads, together with Acciona Energía, one of its projects: Power to Green Hydrogen Mallorca. On the panel, Luis Villalba, Chief Technology Officer at Sunrgyze, created by Enagás and Repsol, presented “SUN2HY: From the sun to green hydrogen in one step”, a photoelectrocatalysis project to produce green hydrogen.
Enagás had a stand at the fair that served as a meeting point with customers and stakeholders, with whom the company continues to consolidate long-term relationships and to make its infrastructures available to support Europe’s energy supply and decarbonisation.
