90 TWh/year biomethane by 2030 in France and up to 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.

90 TWh renewable methane in France 2030

According to the communique by TIGF, GRDF, GRTgaz and SPEGNN released on the 21st of November it would be possible to satisfy 30% of the French gas demand with renewable methane (biomethane) towards 2035. The forecast indicates a growth of renewable methane in the next 12 years from 1 to 90 TWh.

Following the projections, larger and larger volumes will enter the French transport sector. The number of NGVs will go from the current 15,000 to 300,000 in 2035, in the most conservative scenario, while the most optimistic calculations indicate 1 million NGVs by 2035.
