Cities and Regions unlocking the potential of biogas for their energy transition


Join us for the final webinar of the BiogasAction project organised in partnership with the Covenant of Mayors.

Covenant of Mayors – BiogasAction Webinar

Cities and Regions unlocking the potential of biogas  for their energy transition


The revised Renewable Energy Directive sets the target of at least 32% share of energy from renewable sources in the European Union’s gross final consumption of energy by 2030. Regions and cities are frontrunners in decarbonising the economy and developing new techniques for the sustainable and circular use of their territories’ resources. Biogas is part of their story as it is a renewable source for the production of electricity, heat and transport fuel. Biogas provides a solution for local/regional waste management as well as a storable and flexible energy source which can help balance the intermittent supplies of other renewable energies.

BiogasAction aimed specifically to unlock the potential of Biogas for regions and cities. This Horizon2020 project focused on removing non-technical barriers to create better frameworks for the widespread use of biogas and biomethane in the regions of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and North-West part of France, Wales and UK, Croatia, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Denmark, Latvia and South East Sweden.

This webinar will present EU’s policy & support framework for biogas, providing insight into the BiogasAction approach and achievements. It will also be an opportunity to showcase how biogas is being integrated in local planning documents in Latvia, and how the Solrod BiogaS plant solves nutrition oversupply and seaweed problem at Bay of Køgen Denmark.
