Cogeneration saves energy and avoids emissions into the atmosphere, being a relevant competitiveness factor for Spanish industry.

For it to continue to contribute to the objectives of the European Green Deal, plans need to be developed to incentivize the renovation of existing facilities.

It is one of the statements of the report Natural gas in the industry, prepared by Lonjas Tecnología, S.A. and published by the Naturgy Foundation.

The document analyzes the important participation of natural gas in the industrial sector and its relevance in supplying the energy necessary both for its processes and for the generation of electricity, contributing to the fulfillment of the European objectives of reducing greenhouse gases and to greater energy efficiency.

For all these reasons, the report considers that, given its relevance not only in terms of energy consumption but also in terms of generating wealth and employment, the industrial sector should be carefully considered when establishing reduction strategies. emissions.

“The cost of CO2 emissions must be reviewed so that the EU can meet its decarbonisation targets in 2050, and it is necessary to carry out a thorough reform of the Emissions Trading System to make it an effective tool.”

This is one of the main conclusions of the study Carbon Pricing: Main Achievements in Europe and Options for Deep Decarbonisation, published by the Naturgy Foundation and the Spanish Chapter of the Club of Rome.

The report, prepared by Compass Lexecon, analyses the experience accumulated in Europe since the creation of the Emissions Trading Scheme in 2005 and suggests reforms of this market to enable compliance with the European Green Deal, which has raised the target for the reduction in emissions by 2030 from 40% to 55%.
