UK Green Gas Day 2022

The REA and CNG Services have been running the Green Gas Day since 2012. This will be the 10th edition of the conference and exhibition – the largest industry gathering in the UK focused on green gases, including hydrogen – with over 300 people attending all previous years.

Along with actions to accelerate the roll out of energy efficiency measures and the deployment of renewables, green gases such as biomethane and clean hydrogen are key to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels and reliance on imported gas from Russia, as well as to deliver an energy future which is independent, secure, and stable.

In response to the energy price crisis and the Ukrainian situation, the European Commission has recently issued proposals to reduce the EU’s dependence on Russian gas by two thirds before the end of 2022 as part of a plan to become independent from all Russian fossil fuels “well before 2030”. Larger volumes of biomethane and clean hydrogen production will be needed to meet those goals.

The UK has been active in the development of green gas plants in the past decade but more needs to be done to help us become self-sufficient. The growth of the green gas sector in the UK has been mostly supported by the Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (NDRHI) and, more recently, the Green Gas Support Scheme (GGSS). According to Government statistics, the UK has 143 biomethane to grid projects registered under the NDRHI with a further 31 projects in the pipeline. Another 45 biomethane plants are also expected to be developed over the life of the GGSS.
