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


The final webinar of the BiogasAction project organised in partnership with the Covenant of Mayors took place on the 12th December 2018.

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.

The BiogasAction project aimed specifically at unlocking 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 presented EU’s policy & support framework for waste-to-energy and biogas and provided insight into the BiogasAction approach and achievements. 2 practical case studies were also exposed, showing how Covenant signatories are using biogas on the ground for their energy transition.
