Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas Package Briefing

The EASE Secretariat has prepared a briefing on the Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas Package Proposal aiming to provide an introductory analysis that focuses on issues related to energy storage and allowing members and the Secretariat of EASE to have a deeper insight into upcoming legislation towards the European hydrogen and gas market.

The Proposal is released as a revision of the Third Energy Package for gas in December of 2021 by the European Commission, supporting the EU’s climate target of reducing greenhouse gas emission. This briefing is divided in the following chapters:

  • Chapter 1 provides an overview of the Gas Package Revision;
  • Chapter 2 proposes a guide to the Package, highlighting the key provisions per topic;
  • Chapter 3 investigates specific topics and provisions;
  • The Annexe presents upcoming Gas Package-related secondary legislation, a brief F.A.Q., and other key policy and legislative actions.

The notable point is that first time in the legislation related to the internal gas market, the Proposal discusses hydrogen within the provisions for its supply chain.
