The need to scale up biomethane in Europe is more urgent than ever, following the need to reduce dependency on natural gas imports from Russia and address high energy prices while simultaneously addressing the climate crisis.
Biomethane is the cheapest and most rapidly scalable renewable gas available today. Therefore, the European Commission has announced in its recent REPowerEU plan a target to increase annual EU production and use of sustainable biomethane to 35 billion cubic metres by 2030. The Commission also announced the creation of a Biomethane Industrial Partnership (BIP).
The BIP is an industrial partnership in which policy makers, industry and other stakeholders team up with the goal to support the achievement of the target of 35 billion cubic metres annual production and use of sustainable biomethane by 2030, and to create the preconditions for a further ramp-up of its potential towards 2050.
Stay up to date on the upcoming events that are organised by the Biomethane Industrial Partnership, or where the partnership will present:
1 Jan 2023 - 31 Dec 2023
The BIP Task Forces are working hard, so exciting events, webinars, consultations & site visits will be upcoming in 2023!
25 Oct 2022 16.00-17.00 CET
On the 25th of October from 16.00-17.00 CET, the technical kick-off event of the partnership will take place during the EBA annual conference.
The Biomethane Industrial Partnership brings together EU policy makers, Member State representatives, companies active in the biomethane supply chain and other stakeholders. With the goal to support the achievement of the target of 35 billion cubic metres annual production & use of sustainable biomethane by 2030, and to create the preconditions for a further ramp-up of its potential towards 2050.
The Biomethane Industrial Partnership got formally launched on the 28 of September during the European Sustainable Energy Week. The partnership membership is free, and is open to all interested stakeholders that align with the goal of the partnership.
