Building on the success of Gas Week 2012, Gas Week 2013 focused on how natural gas can help Europe make a clean future real.
Taking place between Tuesday 23 April 2013 and Thursday 25 April 2013, Gas Week 2013 was held in the context of the debates on post-2020 European energy, climate and industrial policy and discussions about how to ensure new energy technologies penetrate the European market.
Gas Week 2013 saw a range of high level speakers from the natural gas sector, technology providers, energy using industries and civil society enter into dialogue with the European institutions to find common solutions to Europe's challenges.
During Gas Week an interactive exhibition on the role of natural gas in meeting Europe's energy, climate and industrial policy objectives was situated on the ground floor of the European Parliament's Altiero Spinelli building.
