WBA among coalition of renewable gas organisations calling on the EU to introduce binding biomethane production targets by 2030
WBA and 46 other organisations involved in the decarbonisation of the gas industry in Europe have written a joint letter to European Union policy makers, calling on the EU to include a binding 2030 target for the scale-up of biomethane in the Hydrogen and Gas Package.
The legislation, which is part of the EU Green Deal, represents the last major avenue to introduce a binding biomethane target into EU law in a timeframe that would allow the industry to deliver by the 2030 deadline. This is an opportunity to truly incentivise the currently recommended goal of 35bcm.
In addition, the signatories are calling for a wider binding EU-level target for the development of all renewable gases, complemented by concrete measures to mandate the reduction of the greenhouse gas intensity of the gas mix by 2030.
