Gas and Sustainable Development Goals
Gas and post-COVID-19 recovery
Methane management in the gas sector
Carbon neutrality through synergies between gas(es) and renewable electricity
Sustainable hydrogen: An innovative solution for carbon neutrality
Improving urban air quality
Use of gas in transportation – challenges and opportunities
Carbon capture, utilisation, and storage: The role of gas infrastructure
Promoting sustainable and clean production, distribution, and consumption of gas and LNG in the ECE region

Hydrogen in Europe: Russia’s friend or foe? Водород в Европе: друг или враг России?
29 October 2020 – Hydrogen is a bridge to achieving carbon neutrality. It is not zero-carbon today, but should be in the future. To achieve that, good planning is key. Some member States have already developed a hydrogen strategy, some are working on it. Who does what on hydrogen and how UNECE could help the member States coordinate their efforts is in the presentation that was given on 29 October 2020 at the online conference: “Development of renewable energy sources in the European Union and the assessment of their effectiveness”, organized by the Nizhny Novgorod State Technical University R.E. Alekseeva.
Survey on Methane Management The UNECE Secretariat in consultation with the secretariats of the International Gas Union, the World Coal Association and the World Petroleum Council and other industry experts, has prepared a survey of how methane monitoring is done currently.
