Energise Europe roundtable: "Where are we going? The EU Gas Market Reform"

The European Commission has indicated that one of the first pieces of energy legislation we can expect under the next Commission mandate is further reform of Europe’s gas markets. The recent publication of the EU’s Quo Vadis study sets out initial analysis on the next steps in this. Highlighting the progress made in creating a well-functioning market for gas, it also noted that significant pricing differences remain across Europe. Contractual congestion, cross border tariffs, lack of interconnectors and differences in local market structures are all cited as key challenges in further integrating Europe’s gas markets.

With the first steps complete, what can we expect from the EU in its upcoming reform? And what are the potential obstacles in the way to a better functioning EU gas market?

Join FleishmanHillard’s energy team, the European Commission, as well as representatives of the gas sector, to discuss what way forward for Europe’s gas markets.
