Gas DSOs need to tap renewable gases potential: recommendations for the Greek market

Presentation - November 25, 2020

At the heart of the study lie the development prospects of renewable gases, i.e. bio-methane, green hydrogen and synthetic methane, and their role in supporting Greece achieve climate neutrality in 2050. The few entry points of renewable gases currently in place will be substituted by a decentralized system of producing, storing and injecting gas in different parts of the distribution network. Subsequently, the role of Gas DSOs will be upgraded. Current regulatory weaknesses and gaps concerning the certification of renewable gases, technical standards for their injection into the transmission and distribution networks, the design and operation of the market and incentives for the private sector to invest in much-needed infrastructure will have to addressed.
