In line with the expectations of its stakeholders and its new core purpose – “Together, we enable an energy future that is safe, affordable and climate neutral”  – GRTgaz is stepping up its commitment to the energy transition.

« The target of a 100% carbon-neutral gas system by 2050 will require the renewable gas sectors to become more competitive, and the ability to convert part of the existing network to transport hydrogen. The central issue for the next few years, as shown by our CAP24 project, is to transform GRTgaz to meet the challenge of the third gas revolution that is currently underway »
