Event Description

We are thrilled to invite you to take part in the Webinar of the European Biogas Association on Friday 23 February 2024 from 10h to 11h30 AM CET tackling "Greening Gas Grids". 
 
 Today, injecting Biomethane in gas grids can be cumbersome process in many European countries. This hinders market access for the main renewable gas available today. However, the current status is set to change thanks to the new Hydrogen Gas Package. If implemented correctly, the new set of measures will soon remove barriers to injection and unlock access to markets. 
 
 This webinar will provide guidance for Biomethane grid connection into gas grids and is particularly suited for project developers, financiers, national regulators and policymakers alike.
 
 This webinar will explore this issue by…
  • Sharing recent data on Biomethane grid injection
  • Providing an overview of the positive changes brought by the recently adopted Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas Package.
  • Diving into national regulations influencing Biomethane grid connection: grid connection, cost sharing, gas quality and injection fees
  • Pinpointing the main differences in the gas quality requirements applied today.
 
Please make sure to register if you would like to attend the webinar.
