The European Autumn Gas Conference (EAGC) is Europe’s longest running commercial gas conference, and widely recognised as the premier event for senior executives and management teams from the world’s largest gas and energy companies.
Renowned for its interactive format, EAGC facilitates high calibre business to business networking and innovative audience participation. The exclusivity of the event also ensures that everyone there is a potential business associate.
Now in its 33rd year, EAGC will continue to look to connect European gas markets with new global opportunities in natural gas and LNG.
EAGC has always been about gas issues for gas players. Yet in the face of competition from a growing renewables sector and stubborn coal & nuclear energy production, the gas industry must look to position itself to survive and thrive over the mid to long term.
Working with policy makers and leaders from the renewables sector is partly the answer to developing future successful partnerships. Yet the industry must also take every available opportunity to demonstrate the benefits of a fuel that is well positioned to navigate future market conditions.
If gas is to be Europe’s fuel of choice, the question is where this gas will come from as European production declines. Will it come from international LNG or will it be piped from Russia, Azerbaijan or the Eastern Mediterranean?
Germany is leading the way in achieving the ambitious goals set out in the Paris
accord. It has set itself very strict goals around energy efficiency, price competitiveness and citizen prosperity; marking out Germany as the centre of the energy debate.
Renewables, gas and coal form a triangle of competition and cooperation across Europe. Against this backdrop, Berlin, the heart of German politics, is the obvious place to hold the 33rd Annual European Autumn Gas Conference.
