Gas consumption reduction: European Commission action


This year of full reprise suffered a braking due to Russia-Ukraine war: a dramatic situation worsened by economic consequences that this issue is generating all over Europe.
An example of these consequences is gas supplies, first to be affected by this war policy. Italy saw a reduction of about 30% in Gazprom supply, which complicated production flows in this moment of the year.
This shortage forced European Commission to create a project “Save Gas for a Safe Winter” entirely committed to energetic crisis management.
Last 20 July, European Commission released a
factsheet where demand-reduction guidelines are carefully explained and an optimistic point of view on opportunities is highlighted. From 1st August 2022 to 31st March 2023, all members are adopting a demand-reduction on gas supplies aiming at 15% target, in order to assure higher shortages for this winter.

Moreover, the paper highlights many pivotal points of improvement, this strategy is about to trigger: switching to other renewable sources, incentivizing decrease of industry consumption and steer it towards a new mindset aiming at saving and at responsible resources use.
European Commission attempt is to reduce consumption and widen saving, but at the same time, to pave the way for an energetic infrastructural connection and a stable regulatory system for energy and gas supply.

The path is hard and expensive for companies, which need productive consistency: to do so, an important theme is the conversion of supply systems for plants from a gas to a diesel-powered one, so as to face the sudden reductions.
GE Tanks are the best solution to cope with this emergency: natively designed for generating sets feeding and heating systems: GE tanks are a valuable solution for empowering factory supply chain, without causing productive gaps.

In the belief this period may pave the way for a real energetic transition, the first step remains to maximize resources, without any further wastage.
