Natural Gas Networks in the Future Will Be Used to Transport Gas from Renewable Sources, Skrekas Says

September 28, 2022

ATHENS – “Natural gas networks today are not built just to receive and transport natural gas distribution. These networks, in the coming years and decades, will transport and distribute renewable gases such as biomethane and green hydrogen,” Environment and Energy Minister Kostas Skrekas said on Wednesday in response to a question raised by PASOK-KINAL MP Odysseus Konstantinopoulos.

The minister said that “we are already preparing the regulation for the production and use of biomethane in our country. These networks will also be able to transport green hydrogen produced by Renewable Sources, such as photovoltaics, wind turbines and hydroelectric units.

In this way, the minister explained, these networks will not become obsolete and lose their value but will be used in the future when the transfer of natural gas stops, for the transfer of renewable gases.

He pointed out that it is better to use biomethane directly and not to convert it into electrical energy, as a part of the energy is lost, much more so when we then convert it into thermal energy because an additional percentage of energy is lost. That is why it is better to use biomethane directly for heating houses or for industry, the minister stressed.


The Minister of Culture of Greece, Lina Mendoni, will visit the Center for Hellenic Studies ‘Paideia’ at the University of Connecticut, on Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 November.
