AVENIA is the mouthpiece of its members in
AVENIA, as the trusted third party, offers a
personalized support through two new services: the “Support - Europe” & the
“Support – International.”
The objective is to promote AVENIA’s members’
development by bringing their voices in Brussels, at the heart of European
To do so, we offer an additional service, with at least 3
qualified meetings in a day, or in a different format according to the objective.
In March, AVENIA, with the support of the Representation of Nouvelle-Aquitaine in Brussels, accompanied Nicolas Pélissier,
President of 45-8 Energy, for the initiative earth2. Among the interlocutors, there were:
Partnership, with Pedro Guedes de Campos, Claudiu Pavel, Nikolaos Lymperopoulos
& Pierre Michel
- Hydrogen Europe
association, with Stephen Jackson & Basien Cantalloube
- The Délégation Générale
du Québec à Bruxelles, with André Patrocinio, Audrey Jean & Stéphanie
- DG GROW of the European Commission, with Peter Handley, Gerardo Herrera & Cecilia Serrano
- DG CLIMA of the European Commission, with Christian Holzleitner
This mission was the occasion to mention the
subsurface hydrogen, whether geological storage or natural hydrogen.
Our dependance on energy and raw materials,
reinforces the need to develop a strong European subsurface sector. We could
benefit, in this context of crisis, from an attentive listening.
Concerning natural hydrogen, its numerous advantages, as a decarbonated energy, have been presented. This topic particularly interested our interlocutors, who, for most of them, discovered its existence.
Concerning the storage, its important
capacities and the need to take into account the time it takes for its implementation (& so the need to anticipate),
have been reminded.
Contacts are made, informative messages are heard and pieces of
advice to progress towards European objectives are collected. earth2 now
needs to come back to them with guidelines on the potential of natural
hydrogen in Europe.
Thus, after aLiNA’s success in September and earth2's success this month, AVENIA stands by its members’ to collect the
key information for the development of their activities, to reinforce their
visibility and to promote their activities at the European and International
Other international actions are also being
dealt with, notably with Quebec and Spain, to capitalize on the relationships
developed during the GEODAYS.
