Joint position paper on the F-Gas Regulation revision
On 5 April 2022, the European Commission made a legislative proposal to update the F-Gas Regulation to align it with the European Green Deal, the European Climate Law and recent international obligations under the Montreal Protocol.
The power industry fully embraces the European Commission’s decarbonisation objectives and its ambition to cut F-gas emissions. The DSOs and generators that we represent are committed to adopting a sustainable approach to the development and operation of their assets and thus to using SF6-free electrical equipment for new installations. Consequently, we all support the phasing out of SF6-based technologies after a transition period that varies by voltage level.
