90 TWh/year biomethane by 2030 in France and upto 1,000,000 NGVs by 2035

TIGF, GRDF, GRTgaz and SPEGNN released a forecast on the 21st of November showing that biomethane in France could reach 90 TWh/year in 2030. The number of NGVs in the transportation sector is expected to increase from the current 15,000 to 300,000 in 2035, in the most conservative scenario. The most optimistic scenario indicates 1,000,000 NGVs by 2035. The forecast emphasize the importance of upgraded biogas, bioSNG and renewable methane through Power-to-gas in the French market.

France the new hotspot for biomethane

France is nr 3 in Europe when it comes to nr of biogas plants. The biogas production has almost doubled from 2010 to 2015 and the nr of biomethane plants increased almost an order of magnitude from 2011 to 2016. However, the most interesting is the ambitious targets for 2023 and 2030, and the strong associated incentives.

We foresee a strong and rapid development of the French biomethane market in the years to come and are happy to provide REGATEC 2018 as a vibrant meeting point for the biogas, gasification and Power-to-gas community.

Looking forward to see you in Toulouse, 3-4 May 2018.

The REGATEC team

Electrochaea GmbH exhibits at REGATEC 2017

Electrochaea’s mission is to integrate fluctuating renewables into the electricity grid by means of Power-to-gas technology. Electrochaea employs a patented biocatalyst to convert low-cost and stranded electricity and carbon dioxide into pipeline-grade renewable gas. This gas can be directly injected into the existing natural gas grid.

The REGATEC 2016 call for posters is open

A maximum of 32 posters will be accepted for presentation and published in the REGATEC 2016 conference proceedings. Poster proposal are accepted on a first come, first served basis until the maximum number is reached. Besides the scientific quality and industrial relevance REGATEC strives to get a good international mix of poster presenters and at the same time respect the gender equality.
