Ask WBA: Public demand for green gas
16h00 to 17h00 GMT (UTC +0), Tuesday, 1st December, 2020
The World Biogas Association invited the industry to come together to make presentations, discuss questions and network directly with each other via video link.
The development of alternative waste treatment methods (rather than simply dumping them in open spaces) and the need for non-fossil fuel-based energy sources (substituting coal, oil and natural gas), have led to the growth of the anaerobic digestion (AD) industry which produces biogas. AD is a ready-to-use technology to decarbonise heat for our buildings and transport for ourselves and our goods, while producing a natural fertiliser co-product that can recycle nutrients back to the soil.
In the United States, for example, 18 states have utility programmes, state legislative proposals or regulatory actions that promote the residential or commercial use of upgraded biogas (also known as “biomethane,” “Renewable Natural Gas” and “RNG”). So how has public demand aided investment in biogas? And what are key lessons industry can take in the uptake of biogas?
Join the World Biogas Association at 16h00 to 17h00 GMT (UTC +0) on Tuesday, 1st December for our free online meeting “Ask WBA: Public demand for green gas.” Through our special webinar platform, all attendees can network with each other at “tables” via video-link.
David Newman, President of the World Biogas Association, will chair the meeting. He will be joined by a panel of talks by:
Ramsay Cook, Energy Products & Services Manager, FortisBC
Judith Judson, Vice President – Distributed Energy Systems, Ameresco
