RGFI presented to the JOC on Environment and Climate Action today and reiterated our call for immediate implementation of the RHO to underpin the development of AD biomethane in Ireland for the difficult to abate transport and agriculture sectors.@Dept_ECC @European_Biogas

We welcome today’s unanimous agreement of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Environment and Climate Action on the need for urgent movement to support AD biomethane.  RGFI presented to the JOC reiterating our call for the immediate implementation of the RHO @Dept_ECC

The #biomethane sector is ready to deliver and work with #EU institutions to reach the target of the biomethane plan, including:
✅The production of 35 bcm by 2030
✅The set-up of a biomethane industrial partnership

#Biomethane can play an important role to achieve the #REPowerEU plan’s objectives of diversified #gassupplies and reduce the EU’s dependence on Russian fossil fuels. To this end, production needs to reach 3⃣5⃣ billion cubic meters/year by 2030 →!6pKhPP

#GasPackage An EU-wide right to inject for #biomethane projects developers, including outside gas-served areas, is paramount to a quick integration of biomethane into the energy markets.
More details in our position paper:

Minister Ryan said today “This project shows how we can diversify our gas supplies, by speeding up the roll-out of renewable gases like biomethane .. reduce our reliance on imported fossil fuels.. contribute to our broader climate goals .."

The revised #EED should acknowledge the importance of renewable and decarbonised gases and fuels, such as sustainable #biogas and #biomethane, renewable liquid gases, bioliquids and hydrogen, for which #REPowerEU sets ambitious targets.

Full joint letter:

This would be through the production of sustainable feedstock, organic farm practices, biofertilisers...

11% of Irish natural gas demand could be substituted with sustainable #biomethane by 2030, according to new roadmap published today by Renewable Gas Forum Ireland (RGFI) @RenewGasRGFI.
