Event report: ‘The contribution of gmobility to carbon neutrality’ webinar

On 4 May, NGVA Europe hosted the webinar ‘The contribution of gmobility to carbon neutrality’ to discuss the choice of solutions to decarbonise road transport in a quick and affordable way.

With this objective in mind, NGVA Europe commissioned Frontier Economics to conduct a brand new study. This study aims at demonstrating the concrete benefits of gas in transport by analysing the balance between emissions reductions and relative costs in a larger perspective of technological solutions.

Amber Gorzynski and Dr Matthias Janssen from Frontier Economics presented the key results and findings of the study. The video of the presentation can be found below:

 

Following the presentation of the study, MEP Søren Gade (Renew Europe, Member of the TRAN Committee) held a keynote speech:

MEP Søren Gade: “Biomethane is one of the most cost-efficient ways to contribute to the decarbonisation process at the lowest possible cost to society.
We shouldn't pick the winners and therefore have a technology neutral approach. The path to climate neutrality will be driven by more than one technology.”

 

Afterwards, the panel discussion with industry representatives, policy makers and other relevant stakeholders took place. In detail, the speakers were as follows:

  • Claus Sauter – CEO, VERBIO Vereinigte BioEnergie AG
  • Mats Hultman – Head of OEM Partnerships – Innovation and R&D, Neste Corporation
  • Catherine Girard – Expert Leader, Energy and Raw Materials, Renault
  • Michele Ziosi – Vice President Institutional Relations, CNH Industrial
  • Dr David Bothe – Director, Frontier Economics
