LNG investments pending but IVECO remains Italian

The “news of the day” was supposed to be the role of small scale LNG in the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) but in the very latest version the topic was expunged.

2020: LNG light in the dark, certainty for 2021

It is difficult at the end of a year like this to calmly communicate positive developments and enthusiasm, in any field. But we have to hold on to hope, and in this we have been luckier. For the small-scale LNG industry, 2020 was a good year, worldwide and also in Italy. And 2021 will be even better.

Lessons from Genoa

Lessons from Genoa

As our readers know, as they have massively participated, ConferenzaGNL organised the International Forum “LNG in the Euro-Mediterranean Corridor and the role of the logistic system of Genoa and Liguria” on 19 and 20 November on behalf of the Metropolitan City of Geniva and the Liguria Region. Strictly online.
Considering the follow-up, the positive feedback received, and the novelties that emerged, it was a successful event, which required a great commitment for the orderly participation of 62 speakers, 14 of whom from abroad, simultaneous translation into French and English, in the disastrous context of Italian internet connections.

First the hen, then the egg, but how’s the bird?

First the hen, then the egg, but how’s the bird?

The metaphor of whether the egg or the chicken comes first, meaning whether the demand for a good or the infrastructure to supply it should come first for the development of a market, has been repeatedly used and perhaps abused in these first ten years of development of the direct use of LNG in Italy (and beyond).

European economic recovery, the small scale LNG is there

European economic recovery, the small scale LNG is there

In the latest published comment, we hoped for a confirmation of the European Green Deal program as a tool for relaunching the European economy on new foundations, with a reformist imprint capable of supporting the growing environmental sensitivity of citizens. The analyzes we are reading tell us that we will emerge from the current crisis with an increase in this sensitivity, not a decrease.
