Within the GreenGasGrids project, four working groups elaborated on solutions for the most relevant gaps regarding biomethane.

The sustainability working group, lead by the Renewable Energy Association (REA), addressed sustainability aspects with regard to biomethane. This workings group’s goals were to:

  • Understand how the European Commission's sustainability criteria for biomass and biogas can be integrated in European biomethane markets
  • Analyse national sustainability criteria approaches adopted in the EU
  • Identify key issues from a sustainability perspective of integrating biomethane in existing gas networks
  • Give recommendations for solving open questions of sustainability criteria implementation for biomethane
  • Help ensure that Member States will be able to meet the European Commission's sustainability criteria for biomethane
