Brussels (Belgium)

The agreement includes a commitment to complete the renewable gas interconnections prepared for the future between Spain and Portugal, linking Zamora with Celourico da Beira; to develop a maritime pipeline connecting Barcelona with Marseille, as the fastest and most efficient option for linking the Iberian Peninsula with Central Europe; and to technically adapt these hydrogen infrastructures to transport other renewable gases, as well as a limited proportion of natural gas as a temporary and transitory energy source.

The three leaders also expressed their full support for accelerating and expanding electricity interconnections between the Iberian Peninsula and France to achieve an electrically connected Europe.
