Assist the European Union Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators in Assessing Energy Transition Aspects as Applicable to Gas Infrastructure

Kantor has successfully implemented the project for the “Assist the European Union Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators in Assessing Energy Transition Aspects as Applicable to Gas Infrastructure”.

The objective of the project was to highlight the regulatory aspects of the accelerated refurbishment of existing energy infrastructure and the deployment of new and efficient energy infrastructure, technologies, and products in order to achieve the European Union’s energy and climate policy objectives:

  • completing the internal market in energy; 
  • guaranteeing security of supply; 
  • reducing greenhouse gas emissions; 
  • increasing the share of renewable energy in final energy consumption and
  • achieving better energy efficiency.

We have drafted two background papers with a cross-border relevance and focus on possible regulation of hydrogen networks and possible methane emissions abatement regulations. The key outcome of our work was the identification of possible energy transition regulatory solutions to address the gaps and areas for improvement needed to allow:

  • the introduction of hydrogen to gas transmission, distribution, storage and regasification facilities;
  • abatement of methane emission from transmission, distribution, storage and LNG facilities.
