    International Seminar on Emissions, Energy Efficiency and Natural Gas

    Palau de la Música, Barcelona

    Emissions to the atmosphere, both those which contribute to climate change as well as those affecting air quality, have become a cause for growing concern in most urban areas of the European Union. Improving energy efficiency and developing the use of natural gas can mitigate the negative effects of these emissions. Hence the proposal of the Climate Action and Energy Policy Commissariat of the European Commission and the Gas Natural Fenosa Foundation to devote its Second European Seminar in Barcelona to this issue. The seminar has two parts. The first is devoted to the relationship between energy efficiency and reducing emissions. It reports on the evolution of energy efficiency by sectors and by countries and the calculated impact on emissions reduction. The contribution that cogeneration can make to this improved efficiency is also discussed. Finally, an operational strategy for reducing greenhouse gases worldwide is proposed. The second part focuses on natural gas as a clean and competitive alternative that can contribute to reducing emissions. It reports on natural gas solutions for goods freight by road and for maritime transport. Finally, the key role of citizens in urban mobility, both in choosing one or other mode of transport, such as in the acquisition of a vehicle, and its efficient driving, is discussed. The Seminar starts with a presentation by the Climate Action and Energy Commissioner and closes with a presentation by the Chief Executive Officer of Gas Natural Fenosa.
