The Irish Gas Forum took place in Dublin recently. Our energy sector is undergoing a transition to a low carbon future. To date most of the focus has been on electricity but now there is a need to move the policy debate towards the transition of Ireland’s natural gas network to low carbon gas sources. This important conference was supported by Ervia and Gas Networks Ireland and sponsored by KPMG and Pinsent Masons. A panel of expert local and visiting speakers looked at a number of issues including the options for decarbonisation; the critical role of carbon capture and storage; power-to-gas technologies; the legal and regulatory framework; biomethane injection and the new EU Gas Package.
