Webinar - How to boost local gas production from biomass or waste water: 30/03/2017


How to boost local gas production from biomass or waste water: Inspiration from biogas-powered cities

Covenant of Mayors and CEDEC Webinar

30th March 12.00–13.30

In the future, biogas could play a big role in cities’ energy mix. Gas is currently underexposed in the debate on the future sustainable energy system, green gas and other sustainable gases are rarely mentioned in policy documents or legislation and only few Member States have set targets for it. Nevertheless, there is a lot of potential in biogas production. The underrepresentation of gas in the future energy design would be a missed opportunity as it provides irreplaceable characteristics and benefits. Biogas helps cities set up a circular economy and reach their climate and energy targets, while reducing the need for external gas imports. It also brings flexibility in the energy system, as it can be complementary with electricity.

This online event will provide an outlook into how local authorities have already seized the opportunities offered by biogas.
