The Biomethane Industrial Partnership brings together EU policy makers, Member State representatives, companies active in the biomethane supply chain and other stakeholders. All 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, 2022, 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. By joining the BIP you will be able to give valuable input and you can choose to also actively participate and support the partnership.
The partnership offers two types of memberships:
All interested stakeholders can sign up as Biomethane Industrial Partnership associate member. Associated members are involved by:
Associate membership is open to all and no selection criteria apply.
Task Force Membership
The Task Force membership is an extension of the Associated membership. All EU policy makers, Member State representatives, companies active in biomethane and other stakeholders that wish to actively contribute and be involved to achieving the goal of the Partnership can sign up for Task Force membership. Task Force members are involved by:
The work of the Biomethane Industrial Partnership is currently structured in six Task Forces. Since the number of members of each Task Force is capped, a selection process takes place based on transparent criteria to ensure a diverse and dedicated group.
Please note that a first selection of Task Forces 1-5’ members has been made in January 2023, and they are currently working to help achieve the goal of the BIP. Nonetheless, all stakeholders who are interested in joining a Task Force 1-5 are always encouraged to apply. New applications will be elaborated in due course.
Should you wish to make an immediate contribution to the work of BIP Task Forces 1-5, prior to the next selection of these Task Forces’ members, you are encouraged to contact the BIP secretariat and express your interest to be involved as subject matter expert in specific topics of these Task Forces. If your proposal is accepted, you would function as ‘associated member’, holding a position that does not entail full membership but allows occasional involvement in the activities of the Task Forces.
