This short briefing shows how gas companies are justifying unnecessary gas infrastructure by inflating gas demand figures in Europe. Energy efficiency will significantly reduce gas demand, and the European Commission must ignore the gas lobby figures.
Conventional gas, unconventional gas, shale gas, coal bed methane, fracking, pipelines, liquefied natural gas... understanding what gas is about is far from an easy task. This fact sheet helps do just that.
This briefing outlines the main reasons that we must prioritise efficiency and renewables over gas. To fight climate change it is vital to intensify efforts to save energy, switch to renewables and end the reign of fossil ful companies. This includes the gas lobby which is doing all it can to delay the energy transition.
