United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), Committee on Sustainable Energy,
"3rd Session of the UNECE Group of Experts on Gas”,
with the participation of the Greek Energy Forum as an invited gas expert
GEF is invited by the UN to present its views on the gas prospects of SE Europe to government officials and leading international institutions from around the globe.
Natural gas is becoming an ever more important part of the global energy mix. The UNECE Group of Experts on Gas is examining the role of gas in achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and the emission reduction commitments made at the Conference of Parties, Twenty-first Session (COP21). In addition to this overarching discussion on gas’ continued use in energy systems, four UNECE Gas Workgroups focus on:
- best practice guidance in reducing gas leaks along the gas value chain,
- best practice guidance on the role of natural gas in increasing the uptake of renewable energy,
- best practice guidance for liquefied natural gas,
- recommendations on removing barriers to the use of natural gas as a transportation fuel.
