IEA, BP and European Commisssion to speak at Biogas Outlook webinar – 21 September – online
The World Biogas Association will be hosting a webinar on Thursday 21 September – 15.00-16.30 BST to assess how quickly the biogas and biomethane industry can grow to meet global climate change and Net Zero ambitions.
In its latest annual energy report, the International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts that the bioenergy sector will be the second-fastest growing source of energy between now and 2050 after hydrogen. The EU projects big increases, making biogas one of the three key pillars replacing Russian gas in Europe. BP, having purchased the world’s largest RGN provider in December 2022, has forecast a 25-fold increase in biogas.
But will these predictions be met? What are the assumptions behind them?
This webinar will discuss the outlook for the biogas and biomethane industry, the challenges and uncertainties around forecasts and what policy and regulatory mechanisms are needed to fulfil the sectoral growth that is required to keep 1.5 C alive.
Chaired by ADBA chair and former Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Chris Huhne, this high-profile webinar will feature insights from:
- Charlotte Morton OBE, Chief Executive, World Biogas Association
- Peter Zeniewski, Lead Gas Analyst, International Energy Agency
- Fabio Montemurro, Head of Power Systems and Renewables, BP
- Ruud Kempener, Member of Cabinet of Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson, the European Commission
The webinar is free to attend and you can register HERE.

Notes to Editors:
Launched at COP22 in Marrakesh in 2016, the World Biogas Association is the global trade association for the biogas, landfill gas and anaerobic digestion (AD) sectors, and is dedicated to facilitating the recycling of all organic wastes and residues through biogas globally. It believes that the global adoption of biogas technologies is a multi-faceted opportunity to produce clean, renewable energy, bioCO2 and natural fertilisers while resolving global issues related to development, public health, and economic growth. www.worldbiogasassociation.org
