June 29 - June 30 2022

 ABOUT

The Cedigaz Seminar is an annual, invitation-only high-level meeting to promote knowledge exchange among our members. 

The energy markets are transforming rapidly with far reaching impacts on the natural gas sector and its actors. Though companies are being reforced to rethink traditional business models, the energy transition also offers huge opportunities for the gas industry. 

 

The Cedigaz Seminar is a unique opportunity to meet with peers from top notch companies and organisations, and candidly exchange ideas on emerging issues of critical importance for the industry in a productive, closed-door environment. The Seminar will feature exclusive presentations, off-the-record discussions and ample networking to support you and your organisation in tackling our new energy future.

The Cedigaz Seminar 2022 took place on 29-30 June and welcomed over 80 invited participants from across the European energy market and beyond. Following a wonderful drinks and dinner cruise along the Seine, the Seminar featured an engaging mix of original research and lively panels with robust participation from the attendees. Thank you very much to our speakers, sponsors and all our attendees and we look forward to seeing you next year on June 28 – 29. Mark your diaries now!

“Green or Blue H2? How do we Achieve Scale with Hydrogen and will CCUS be Enough to Deliver Acceptable Emissions Reductions?” 

  • How can we balance massive investments in H2 infrastructure and scalability with current socio-economic cost pressures - who pays for all of this?

  • Is there any realistic long-term future for anything other than ‘green’ H2 and how should legislators best support this?

  • Is H2 best applied to heavy industry and buildings use, or can there be a realistic and cost-efficient future for H2 powered vehicles?

  • Would drives to decarbonise faster be more effectively served by investing more into nuclear and other carbon-free energy solutions instead?
