The Spanish Confederation of Service Station Employers (CEEES) and the Spanish Gas Association (Sedigas) have signed an agreement to collaborate on promotional activities related to sector decarbonisation through the utilisation of renewable gases, biomethane, and renewable hydrogen.
The agreement, signed by CEEES President Jorge dae Benito and Sedigas President Joan Batalla, also explores opportunities for joint efforts in technology dissemination and the sharing of regulatory examples related to energy transition and the adoption of new mobility fuels.
The first initiative of this collaboration is CEEES joining the Alliance for Biomethane, an initiative led by Sedigas to promote the use of this renewable resource, which has already attracted participation from a dozen companies. These include national businesses organisations from the energy, industry and Spanish agricultural and livestock sectors.
“Many of the service stations grouped under the CEEES umbrella already dispense natural gas for vehicles, either liquefied or compressed, and will be able to supply biomethane very soon, thus contributing to the decarbonisation of mobility,” said Jorge de Benito after signing the agreement.
“We welcome the Alianza por el Biomethane to the confederation and we are convinced that the cooperation between CEEES and Sedigas will result in greater knowledge and awareness among motorists about the benefits that biomethane and renewable hydrogen can bring. to a more sustainable mobility, while favouring the competitiveness and energy sovereignty of Spain,” stated Joan Batalla.
