RES at the core of climate and energy policies

Biogas/biomethane production can be part of the bio-economy and contribute to decreased emissions in sectors such as industry, agriculture, transport, housing or waste management. This is one of key messages  contained in EBA’s reply to the Commission consultation to reduce EU greenhouse gas emissions in the long-term. The consultation will analyse cost-efficient scenarios towards decarbonisation in line with the Paris Agreement. more

Bioeconomy: from a complicated word to a familiar place

“We are moving the bioeconomy from being a very complicated word to being a very familiar place” stated John Bell, Director at the European Commission in charge of bioeconomy, during his opening speech at the Bioeconomy conference held on October 22nd 2018 at the European Commission in Brussels.

The BiogasAction final conference highlights the essential role of regional cooperation on the development of biogas in Europe

The final conference the BiogasAction project took place on 11 October in Brussels in the framework of the European Week of the Regions and Cities. It gathered together numerous biogas stakeholders, including EBA, one of the partners coordinating this H2020 project. We discussed the current role of biogas on EU energy and  on the environmental targets, as well as the positive developments on biogas valorisation in the different regions targeted by this project. “Biogas can be an important game changer in the shift towards bioeconomy. It boosts the development of renewable energy, reduces emissions, promotes regional development and makes a positive contribution to circular economy”. Explained Nils Daugaard, coordinator of the BiogasAction project. more

EBA publishes a joint-leaflet with NGVA Europe on g-mobility: Driving Circular Economy in Transport

EBA and NGVA joined forces to unveil the benefits of gas in transport by presenting a common vision of the associations regarding biomethane as a transport fuel. By 2030, around 30% of gas in transport should be biomethane produced by anaerobic digestion, gasification and power-to-gas. G-mobility is a key player for transport decarbonisation and improving air quality. Renewable gas is fully compatible with current natural gas technologies: blending can be made in any proportion and without any impact on vehicles and transport.
