Green Gas is helping the UK shift to lower carbon

Added: 7th January 2019 by CNG Services

Biomethane Day, the largest annual gathering in the UK gas-to-grid industry, will demonstrate how ‘Green Gas’ is making a material contribution to the UK’s path to lower carbon, focusing on the latest developments in the sector.

Since the Renewable Energy Association (REA) and CNG Services first held Biomethane Day in 2012 the number of plants injecting biomethane into the grid has grown from one to 84 at the end of 2016, with biomethane now being used in homes, industry and transport.

John Baldwin, managing director of CNG Services said:

“Biomethane-to-grid is now a significant source of renewable energy for the UK and helping decarbonise our gas grid. Since last year’s event, we have also seen big developments in the use of green gas from the grid for transport, with Scania launching a new Bio-CNG truck in the UK with a range of 500 miles and CNG Fuels and Waitrose showing how to run a 100% diesel free transport fleet.”

Biomethane Day provides a forum where developers and operators can meet financiers, feedstock providers, government officials and suppliers. This year over 300 delegates are expected with exhibition stands from all the major suppliers to the Biomethane industry.
