Prof. Roggenkamp and Dr Fleming presented at University of Almeria in Spain: Greening the European Gas Sector

15 May 2017

On 10 May 2017 Prof. Roggenkamp and Dr. Fleming addressed an audience of international legal scholars and Spanish students during the conference `Law, Energy and Climate Change´ at the University of Almeria, Spain. The University invited both to give a presentation on `Greening the European Gas Sector: the Regulation of Alternative Gases´.

In the lecture Prof. Roggenkamp and Dr. Fleming addressed the legal challenges that are brought about by the introduction of biomethane and hydrogen to the gas grid. In addition they emphasized the innovative potential of, for instance hydrogen, as an alternative energy carrier to store electricity via the Power-to-Gas technology.

The conference was the culminating point of a three day mid-term meeting of the Academic Advisory Group tot he International Bar Association, Section on Energy, Environment, Resources and Infrastructure Law (SEERIL). The meeting that was held in San Jose, Spain focussed on discussions of a new book-project of the group and additional experts like Dr. Ruven Fleming. The new book with the working title `Innovations in Energy Law and Climate Change´ is scheduled for publication in early 2018 with Oxford University Press in relation with the next biannual SEERIL meeting.
