A Single European Biomethane Market, a Step Closer to Reality
(NGV Journal) The European Renewable Gas Registry (ERGaR) members announced that the application of the ERGaR RED scheme has been submitted to the European Commission to be recognized as a voluntary scheme under the Renewable Energy Directive 2009/28/EC. The submission represents a critical milestone, bringing one step closer the goal of establishing a single European biomethane market thanks to an administrative system designed to facilitate cross-border transactions of renewable gases.
The European Renewable Gas Registry is based on the cooperation with national biogas/biomethane/renewable gas registries, covering today 10 European countries. ERGaR built on its national renewable gas registries’ expertise to establish an independent, transparent and trustworthy documentation scheme for cross border transfer and mass balancing of renewable gas injected into the European natural gas network. ERGaR will support the establishment of such registries in every European country and will work towards incorporating all national registries into the scheme.
The concept of cross-border biomethane administration through a new voluntary scheme was developed within the BIOSURF Horizon 2020 project. READ MORE
