Ireland needs to embrace renewable agri based biomethane as part of the mix to decarbonise difficult areas such as the thermal processes of industry and agriculture while supporting farmers @IEABioenergy @Dept_ECC @agriculture_ie

IEA Bioenergy@IEABioenergy

Renewable energy supply in Ireland represents 11% of its gross final consumption. Ireland has a binding EU target for renewable energy of 16% by 2020 & while progress has been made the country is not on track to meet its 2020 targets. Learn more: https://bit.ly/3iAATSE

Great to see some progress towards decarbonising heat in Ireland - an opportunity to grow an indigenous #BioMethane industry with the additional benefits for agriculture #AgriAD #climateaction @DanielTMurray @LorcanAllen @StephenRobbFJ @codohertynews @KOSullivanIT @RenewGasRGFI https://twitter.com/Dept_ECC/status/1425766565077716992

Dept. Environment, Climate and Communications@Dept_ECC

We have launched a consultation on the potential introduction of a Renewable Heat Obligation. An obligation in the heat sector would incentivise the use of renewable heat by ensuring a certain proportion of the energy supplied is renewable. #HaveYourSay http://www.gov.ie/en/consultation/7bc5b-consultation-on-the-introduction-of-a-renewable-heat-obligation/

Government policy needs to consider latest research @teagasc @DevenishNutri showing higher energy yields using mixed species grassland, strengthening the case for including agri based biomethane production in the #renewables mix @GasforClimate @Dept_ECC

We are happy to learn from @nedgia 🇪🇸 that more & more cities in #Spain, such as #Madrid, #Barcelona, #Mallorca & #Toledo, are expanding 📈 their fleet of natural #gas buses 🚌 for environmental 🌍 reasons. Such actions are indeed necessary to reduce GHG emissions in #transport! https://twitter.com/nedgia/status/1394940894051110915

Nedgia@nedgia

Cada vez más ciudades en nuestro país están ampliando su flota de autobuses de #GasNatural🌿 y mejorando la #CalidadDelAire🍃

🚍 #AlcaláDeGuadaira, #Barcelona, #Mallorca, #Madrid, #Salamanca, #Toledo... son sólo los últimos ejemplos.

¡La #MovilidadSostenible con #ECOG no para!
