Is green in the pipeline? Sensing gas’ potential contribution to climate change mitigation

Natixis Research highlights the role of natural gas and related assets as an indispensable link in the journey towards carbon neutrality.



Offering systemic decarbonization solutions for entire sectors of industry and mobility, the hydrogen sector, in particular the green hydrogen sector (low-carbon electrolysis), is still taking off.

Natixis’ freshly released study seeks precisely to determine in what regulatory/contractual framework and under what conditions private capital (debt, equity) can be best deployed to participate in the financing of the sector.

Following this publication, Ivan Pavlovic, senior Energy / Green & Sustainable specialist, and Antoine Trieux, Industry banker Infrastructure & Energy, were invited on March 17 by the French MP Michel Delpon, to a hearing of French National Assembly’s hydrogen working group. Bringing together the members of this working group as well as other deputies and in the presence of Hoang Bui, coordinator of the national hydrogen strategy, this hearing enabled Antoine to detail Natixis' positioning in the hydrogen sector and Ivan to present the conclusions of its recently published study on the financing of the green hydrogen sector.

  2. Making sense of the main types of waste in terms of their source, composition and management options
  3. Highlighting which currently available financial instruments and market practices are relevant for financing sustainable waste management

OUTLOOK 2021: a return to (ab)normality

"More than ever, 2020 has confirmed that what we know, is that we know nothing. Nevertheless, it is essential to analyse the facts objectively. We present our macroeconomic and financial scenarios and discuss structural topics for the coming years: energy transition with a focus on the major players in hydrogen, and “smart cities” being called upon to change drastically and no doubt for the better."
