Biomethane Key in Ireland's Decarbonization (Opinions & Asides)
ERVIA
Date: 2021-09-27
"We need to stop seeing gas and electricity as separate and look at how to decarbonise the end-to-energy system, not just individual fuels. As Ireland's gas network is one of the most modern in the world, there's a ready-made solution right under our feet.

"The gas network can be repurposed to carry decarbonised gases, such as biomethane and hydrogen, at minimal cost and disruption, and in turn play a critical role in an integrated gas and electricity system to decarbonise the country's energy needs.

"(ERVIA subsidiary) GNI's vision is for Ireland to replace natural gas with renewable gases, such as biomethane and hydrogen, to substantially reduce the country's carbon emissions while complementing intermittent renewable electricity and ensuring a secure energy supply , according to ERVIA CEO Cathal Marley speaking at the 25th annual Energy Ireland conference.

Dublin-headquartered state-own national gas and water utility ERVIA, through its subsidiary Gas Networks Ireland (GNI), operates Ireland's €2.7 billion national gas network and supplies more than 30 pct of Ireland's total energy, including 40 pct of all heating and over 50 pct of the country's electric power generation.

FortisBC Rebooting RNG Program on Oct. 15 (Ind. Report)
FortisBC
Date: 2021-09-17
In British Columbia, Canada, FortisBC Energy Inc. reports it will reopen its renewable natural gas (RNG) program to its natural gas customers on Oct. 15, 2021. The program was temporarily halted in 2019 when demand exceeded supply with around 10,000 customers subscribers.

FortisBC's RNG program kicked off in 2011 and was the first utility in North America to offer RNG to customers as a simple way to lower their greenhouse gas emissions. FortisBC now has 15 new RNG supply agreements approved by its regulator, the British Columbia Utilities Commission. FortisBC currently works with nine biogas producers (six in in BC and three out of province) to produce RNG. The company also aims to have contracts in place for around 24 petajoules of renewable gas by 2025, representing around 10 percent of its natural gas supply (Source: FortisBC, PR, Website, 15 Sept., 2021) Contact: FortisBC RNG, Jason Wolfe, Dir.

Nicor's Illinois RNG Pilot Gets the Nod (Ind. Report)
Nicor Gas
Date: 2021-07-21
Naperville, Illinois-headquartered Nicor Gas is reporting it Renewable Gas Interconnection Pilot has been approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC), paving the way for new renewable natural gas (RNG) facilities to be interconnected.

With the project, Nicor Gas hopes to determine how RNG could be efficiently integrated into its natural gas distribution system at large and fill out its offerings with cleaner, reliable fuel.

The project will be promoted with an investment cap of $16 million, setting a tariff for the distribution system to interconnect renewable fuel production systems, theoretically allowing Nicor to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its distribution system and create economic benefits for the region, including $78 million in total economic output over a project's 20-year lifespan -- the amount predicted for a single RNG project -- according to the release.

British Columbia Enables RNG, Hydrogen Investment (Ind. Report)
Province of British Columbia
Date: 2021-07-16
In Victoria, the Canadian Province of British Columbia is reporting amendments to its Greenhouse Gas Reduction Regulation (GGRR) to encourage and increase the production and use of renewable nature gas (RNG) as well as green and waste hydrogen while reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The amendments support the Province's upcoming hydrogen strategy, which will include ambitious goals to increase the production and use of renewable and low-carbon hydrogen to help achieve climate targets under CleanBC.

The GGRR allows utilities like FortisBC Energy Inc. (FortisBC) and Pacific Northern Gas Ltd. to make time-limited investments, within spending and volumetric caps, to stimulate the domestic market for renewable gases and reduce GHG emissions. It also allows utilities to increase the amount of RNG, green and waste hydrogen, and other renewable energy they can acquire and make available to their customers by:

  • increasing the amount of renewable gas utilities can acquire and supply from 5 to 15 pct of their total annual supply of natural gas;

  • broadening the methods by which utilities can obtain hydrogen, RNG and other renewable gases to include producing it or upgrading it themselves for injection into the pipeline, paying a third party to produce it or upgrade it for pipeline injection, or purchasing hydrogen, synthesis gas or lignin to displace the use of natural gas at customers' facilities;

  • allowing the current price cap of $30 per gigajoule that utilities can pay to acquire any of these fuels to increase with inflation; and

  • enabling utilities to acquire and supply green and waste hydrogen, synthesis gas and lignin.

    The changes to the GGRR will help to achieve CleanBC objectives, which commit to a 15 pct renewable gas content in the natural gas system by 2030.

    The European Green Deal -- In the Fast Lane with Biomethane in Transport (Int'l. Ind. Report Attached)
    European Biogas Association ,Natural and Bio Gas Vehicle Association
    Date: 2020-06-15
    The attached document from the European Biogas Association (EBA) and the Natural and Bio Gas Vehicle Association (NGVA Europe) illustrates the current and potential uptake of biomethane in the transportation sector.

    According to the document, 17 pct of biomethane is used today to fuel natural gas vehicles (NGVs) in 25 pct of Europe's refueling network, resulting in a 35 pct reduction of emissions when compared to conventional fuels -- the highest rate of emissions reduction compared to other fuels, with greater potential when coupled with renewable gas. The report notes 117 terawatt-hours of renewable gas could be distributed as transport fuel as bioCNG and bioLNG by 2030 -- 40 pct of the overall fuel consumption of NGVs, estimated at more than 13 million vehicles in 2030.

    A higher uptake of bioCNG and bioLNG in the sector will result in an overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction of 55 pct . Up to one million jobs will be created to ensure the scale-up of biomethane in the coming decades. New CNG and LNG stations and vehicles must also be created and must be compatible with their renewable counterparts, the document notes.

    Automaker Participating in Spanish Biomethane Fuel Project (Int'l.)
    European Commission,Strategic Research Institute
    Date: 2019-09-25
    With the goal of boosting the circular economy, energy efficiency and emissions reduction, Spanish auto maker SEAT S.A. reports it will participate in the Life Landfill Biofuel project which will obtain renewable gas from municipal landfills. The project, which was recently approved by the European Commission, is intended to produce biomethane from an indigenous, abundant biomass energy source. The 4-year project is budgeted at €4.6 million of which the European Commission will provide 55 pct.

    SEAT is currently working on the Life Methamorphosis project to obtain biomethane from previously selected waste and animal slurry from a farm in Lleida, Spain. The new Life Landfill Biofuel project is a step further as the raw material originates directly from the landfill, without prior separation.

    Other project participants include FCC, IVECO, The University of Granada, the CARTIF Foundation, SYSADVANCE and Gasnam. SEAT previously developed a similar project with Aqualia to convert waste water into biofuel. (Source: SEAT S.A.
