BioLPG: A Renewable Pathway Towards 2050

Join us for the launch of the first of its kind study on the BioLPG pathway towards decarbonisation in Europe by 2050.

 

February 23rd, 2021
Online Launch Event

 

WHY NOW?

The European Green Deal aims at making the EU economy more sustainable by pursuing the ambitious goal of becoming the first climate neutral continent by 2050. To get there, climate and environmental challenges must be turned into opportunities, and all future-proof technologies and energy solutions must play their part in the green transition.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Anyone interested in renewable energy debate, from academics to media, different industries, as well as both national and EU-level policymakers.

THE ROLE OF THE LPG INDUSTRY?

The industry can play a significant role in meeting the European Green Deal’s greatest pledge. Liquid Gas Europe, together with Atlantic Consulting, produced a study that offers different pathways for the LPG industry towards carbon-neutrality by 2050. Based on up-to-date and authoritative projections of future European energy demand, it shows that if the right policy framework is in place, projected demand for LPG in 2050 can be met entirely with bioLPG.

The study will serve as a background for our expert panel made up of EU policy makers and representatives from the energy and gas industry. Touching upon different innovative technologies of bioLPG production, addressing future opportunities, and presenting feasible solutions to today’s main challenges, the event will tackle the following questions:

  • What is bioLPG, and how is it different from LPG?
  • Why are renewable gases a key solution in the pathway to decarbonisation in heating and transport sectors?
  • Where and how will renewable gases, including bioLPG, deliver the most critical contribution towards 2030 targets and full decarbonisation by 2050?
  • What is the energy user/consumer perspective on the uptake of renewable gases, especially with regard to affordability?
  • Which policy interventions should be made to make this vision a reality? How can the incoming “fit for 55” package, and the revision of REDII play their part?
