OIES Podcast – TEN-E Regulation and decarbonisation of gas in Europe
In June 2022 the revised TEN-E Regulation, updating a regulatory framework for the development of cross-border energy infrastructure in the EU has entered into force. David Ledesma discusses the Regulation with Katja Yafimava, (the author of the recent OIES paper ‘The TEN-E Regulation: allowing a role for decarbonized gas’) and Alex Barnes. This discussion is aimed at explaining how the revised Regulation contributes towards a regulatory framework for decarbonisation of the EU’s gas infrastructure by enabling construction of new hydrogen pipelines and repurposing existing natural gas pipelines to transport hydrogen, while also allowing projects associated with such repurposing to transport blends of (bio)methane with hydrogen until the end of 2029.
