EU Energy Union Tour continues in September

EBA encourages all its members and other partners to participate in his visits in order to demonstrate the important role of biogas and biomethane in the Energy Union: energy self-sufficiency, decarbonised transport, diversified gas supply, resource efficiency, sustainable bioenergy, etc.!

The European Commission’s Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič has been on his Energy Union Tour since May 2015. Through these country visits, the Commission aims to engage in an intensive dialogue with local governments as well as relevant stakeholders, including business communities.
