The Spanish Confederation of Service Station Employers (CEEES) and the Spanish Gas Association (Sedigas) signed a collaboration agreement in Madrid. Under this deal, both organizations will cooperate with the aim of carrying out promotional and awareness actions related to the decarbonization of mobility through the use of renewable gases: biomethane and renewable hydrogen.
The agreement, signed by Jorge de Benito and Joan Batalla, presidents of CEEES and Sedigas, respectively, also contemplates collaborating in the promotion of technology, and the best regulatory examples related to the energy transition and the use of new fuels for transportation. Within the framework of this alliance, both entities will also work together in the organization of conferences, workshops and development of publications in the areas of interest of their respective associates.
The first result of this collaboration is the adhesion of the CEEES to the Alliance for Biomethane, a campaign led by Sedigas to encourage the adoption of this renewable and native resource to which a dozen national business organizations from the energy, industry, agricultural and livestock sectors have joined.
“Many of the service stations grouped under the CEEES umbrella already supply natural gas for vehicles, either liquefied or compressed, and will be able to supply biomethane very soon, thus contributing to the decarbonization of mobility,” said Jorge de Benito after signing the agreement.
“We welcome CEES to the Alliance for Biomethane and we are convinced that this cooperation will translate into greater knowledge and awareness among motorists about the benefits that biomethane and renewable hydrogen can bring to a more sustainable mobility, while favoring the competitiveness and energy sovereignty of Spain,” commented Joan Batalla.
