GRDF, Shell, Calvera and Eurogas Share their Insights at Biogas Europe Summit 2019

2019 Highlights

ACI’s 5th Future of Biogas Europe Summit took place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on 13th – 14th November 2019. In this post, we highlight the interviews from GRDF, Shell, Calvera and Eurogas at Biogas Summit, four of our key speakers sharing their insights in the last year’s edition (content provided by Biogas Channel).

GRDF: 107 biomethane plants connected to the gas network in France.

Victor Thévenet, EU Policy Officer – GRDF

About 107 biomethane plants in France are connected to the gas grid. A fair number that helps set ambitious goals. GRDF aims at reaching 12 TWh of injected biomethane by 2023. Some incentive systems will help reach such a target, including the 99€/MWh feed-in tariff for 15 years and the guarantee of origin. In this interview with GRDF, France’s main distributor, we will discover the potential and incentives for this industry.

Calvera: Solutions and costs for transporting renewable natural gas

Romuald Chiron, Business developer manager – Calvera

In addition to the network, there are many transport solutions for renewable natural gas. Not only solutions for road transport but also standard cells for small-scale distribution. And what about the costs? Calvera Group’s case histories give an example.

Shell New Energy: investments and projects on biomethane

Christian Cuenot, Business developer manager BioMethane, Shell New Energies

Shell New Energy is the Shell brand providing innovative and clean energy solutions. Shell New Energy invests two billion dollars annually to support the dissemination of alternative fuels, including LNG and Bio-LNG. To this end, the company is working on several biomethane projects, including three prominent initiatives in Brazil, India and the Netherlands, as explained by Christian Cuenot, Business Developer and Manager at Shell New Energies.

The role of gas in the European Union explained by Eurogas

Andreas Guth – Policy Director , Eurogas

It has been well established that gas plays and will continue to play a significant role in helping the European Union achieve its 2030 climate and energy goals. A role that will remain valid for decades to come, given the goal of reducing emissions to zero by 2050. But why is gas a key element for a competitive and well-functioning energy market? We asked Eurogas, an association that represents the gas trade and distribution sectors in relation to EU institutions.
