Biomethane is a renewable gas. It is made from biodegradable matter such as food waste, sewage or energy crops. It has a key role to play in a low carbon economy.
Britain has a comprehensive network of gas pipes reaching over 80 per cent of UK homes. We don't need to make any changes to appliances or the gas network to use biomethane.
We want to increase the amount of renewable gas we have on our network. And we want to make it as simple as possible for producers to connect to our network.
Doing this will help meet the UK Government's challenging 2050 targets for:
- reducing greenhouse gas emissions
- reducing landfill waste, and
- meeting energy demand by using sustainable resources.
