This chapter concludes that gas infrastructure has the potential to be a vital component of the EU’s energy security and its commitment to the climate change towards 2050. It also acknowledges that the EU cannot produce zero carbon energy at a low cost. This concluding chapter, emphasises the importance of predictability of law and policy and open markets for enabling private investment in the gas value chain under the principles of project finance. Given the urgency of addressing climate change in a very strict timeframe, this final chapter provides broad recommendations with implications for the future of the gas sector in the EU as it addresses climate change in the ongoing energy transition.
