Green energy vectors
Looking at the current situation, there’s an urgent need to intensify efforts to reach the European and national decarbonisation targets. An energy system where natural gas and energy vectors obtained from renewable sources coexist is presently the only possible solution for international, and especially national energy transition. For this reason, domestic and European policies are aligning themselves concerning the essential role of green gases as the solution for decarbonisation in the medium-long-term. Specifically, the combination of hydrogen, biomethane and alternative forms of gas storage and transportation (through Compressed Natural Gas and Liquefied Natural Gas) will make it possible to respond to the energy requirements of the most critical sectors, using the existing infrastructures and resources in Italy. Snam, in line with national energy strategies, is positioned as a vehicle for this transition, through research, investments and collaborations aimed at the development of green energy vectors in Italy.
