|GIE position paper regarding the revision and future of the European Programme for Critical Infrastructure Protection (EPCIP)|
Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE) represents European transmission system operators, storage operators and LNG operators across Europe. As such it is in a unique position to make a positive contribution to Europe’s energy needs, and the ongoing security and well being of Europe’s citizens. Gas infrastructure transports twice as much energy as the electricity sector, and its strategic importance to Europe is recognized in the 2009 European Program on Critical Infrastructure Protection (EPCIP) Directive. The European Commission is currently in the process of preparing a revision of the EPCIP directive, and this paper marks the start of GIE’s positive engagement, and contribution to the successful completion of the recasting process.

On 15 December 2011, the European Commission adopted the Communication "Energy Roadmap 2050". As a first reaction to this publication, GIE has decided to update its key messages on the Energy Roadmap 2050 (published in June 2011) and to publish them within a brochure.

The European Commission launched in December 2011 a public consultation on Renewable Energy Strategy. This public consultation had the aim of soliciting the view of interested parties to assess in how far the orientations of the current policy framework on renewable energy remain valid in the medium term - i.e. after 2020 until 2030. Given the strong interactions between renewables and gas, GIE decided to prepare a response to remind about the “enabler” role of natural gas for variable RES as well as the key role that natural gas should play in a low carbon economy.

The European Commission unveiled in October 2011 the Connecting Europe Package containing the proposal for "Guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure" and the "Connecting Europe Facility". During the legislative process that has started, the proposals will be examined, discussed and redrafted. As key stakeholders, gas infrastructure operators – represented by GIE – would like to contribute to this process...

Gas quality plays a crucial role for the interoperability of gas systems and thus the free flow and trade of gas. Currently, there exist different natural gas qualities across Europe depending largely on the different sources of gas. Furthermore, with the declining European natural gas production and the expected increase in demand in the coming decades, Europe’s import dependency will most likely grow, particularly for power generation where natural gas has proved to be the cleanest, most efficient and versatile of all fossil fuels.
The interconnectivity of existing transportation systems, the ability of gas storage facilities to modulate demand and the ability to import LNG from a wide range of sources will all play very important roles in providing security of supply throughout Europe.
This existence of disparate gas qualities has received increased attention in the recent years mainly due to the integration processes of the European gas market. Moreover, with the envisaged development of renewable energy sources, including those in gaseous form such as biomethane, synthetic natural gasor hydrogen, the topic of gas quality will further gain in importance. It is worth noting in this context that biomethane is considered to have the highest potential impact in the energy mix in the nearest future, largely due to the political support that it receives.

Meeting the EU’s very ambitious commitments towards a low-carbon economy by 2050 will require parallel development of energy efficiency measures, the development of renewable energy sources and the deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS). Road transport will contribute towards this reduction if alternative fuels such as CNG and LNG are further developed within the road vehicle market. Most importantly, these developments will have to be accompanied by a significant development of new natural gas infrastructures.

On 13 September 2011, the European energy regulators launched a public consultation on the draft CEER 2012 Work Programme (Ref. C11-WPDC-22-06). This document outlines CEER’s work plan for 2012, centred on four overall strategy focus areas.
GIE answered to this CEER public consultation focusing its answer on three areas: the role of CEER and ACER, CEER's work on storage and CEER's work on LNG.
