By 2030, the energy sector will have to reduce its emissions by 75%, thus offer-ing its contribution to the challenging environmental objectives of the energy transition. Methane and its infrastructures are facing an abruptly changed con-text, where market risks, technological opportunities and the legislative-regulatory framework are intrinsically linked. Notwithstanding the fact that the natural gas will remain relevant, especially in Italy, the process of assignment of gas distribution concessions through competitive tenders can become an oppor-tunity to relaunch investments and support the Italian decarbonisation strategy. The update and the implementation of the preliminary incentive regulatory framework proposed by ARERA is crucial, in order to foster the coexistence be-tween traditional gases, which are currently essential, and the full development of other forms of environmentally sustainable gas - such as hydrogen - which still require time and substantial investments to achieve an adequate level of ma-turity and diffusion.
