Barrow Green Gas (BGG) has put biomethane into the national gas network for a record 33 biomethane producers, more than any other gas shipper in Great Britain. Every month more green gas comes available via BGG as new biomethane producers connect to the grid and existing ones produce increasing amounts. BGG managing director, Tim Davis says:
“2016 is the year where we have seen green gas really take off with increasing numbers of producers injecting green gas into the existing gas grid. This year we saw our gas being supplied to some of the UK’s leading renewable energy suppliers, with Good Energy and Green Energy UK offering green gas to customers. We are also supplying CNG Fuels with green gas as a transport fuel that is being used by Waitrose, John Lewis, Argos and Brit European – a great alternative to diesel.”
In September, changes to the greenhouse gas reporting protocol meant, that by switching to green gas, companies can radically reduce their reported carbon emissions. Davis continues:
“The fact that companies can now use green gas to reduce their reported carbon emissions to almost zero has been a big factor in rising demand. We are now seeing industrial and commercial companies make enquiries about switching to green gas. Companies can see that green gas is a simple way to demonstrate their sustainability credentials and support development of the green gas industry.”
The UK has the fastest growing green gas market in the world and dedicated biomethane shipper, BGG, is the largest shipper of biomethane. In addition, BGG markets green gas certificates (GGCs), the value of which is now considerably increased for companies when reporting their emissions.
