On January 12th, 2021, EIT InnoEnergy organised the webinar “Green gas: how to make the green gas industry competitive by 2030?”, with ENGIE and French energy media GreenUnivers. Through two round tables, French start-ups Arol Energy, Naoden, Quantom, HySiLabs, Atawey and Sylfen discussed the topic in more depth. Find a sum up of its content here.
Over 300 hydrogen and gas industrial representatives, government agencies and investors attended the webinar to hear all about the current challenges that the market is facing regarding production, cost reduction and the future uses of green gas.
One cannot deny the dynamism of this sector in France: in 2020, 80 new production sites were built to increase green gas production up to 56%. There are more than a thousand projects awaiting validation, for which, would they all be executed, will multiply the production capacity by six. The French government has the objective to increase the national consumption of green gas from 1% to 8% by 2028. That is why EIT InnoEnergy supports startup companies that are in the front line of this activity. These businesses have an unmistakable societal impact on the reduction of the carbon tax and waste management.
