4th European Biomethane Conference

Dublin, September 2018 – The European Biomethane Conference offers a platform to discuss new trends and perspectives on biomethane and renewable gases in Europe. The previous three editions of the annual conference took place in Berlin and each attracted around 150 participants from more than 15 countries. This year the EBC will be hosted in Dublin on the 20th September 2018.

Meet ERGaR at the European Biomethane Conference in Dublin and get informed about the European biomethane trade!


Why Dublin? The technical potential of biomethane in Ireland has been estimated at around 33PJ in 2020, equivalent to around 11% of final energy demand or a third of total gas demand. This conference will set a signal for the development of a biomethane market in Ireland.


With this conference, the organisers by dena and RGFI, are sending out a clear signal for the development of a biomethane market in Ireland.

Meet leaders from the politics, gas industry, trade associations, energy agencies, producers and traders of biomethane, scientists and politicians from Ireland and all over Europe. Learn about green gas markets in other European countries and discuss innovative technologies as well as regulatory obstacles and opportunities.

The full programme for the Conference is currently being finalised and will be available shortly. You can look forward to inputs from:

  • Michela Morese, Executive Secretary, Global Bioenergy Partnership, focusing  on sustainability indicators
  • Guillaume Virmaux, Head of European Affairs, Gaz Réseau Distribution France, outlining how France intends to reach its ambitious goals for biomethane injection
  • A panel discussion on the promotion of biomethane via feed-in tariffs versus subsidies for use
  • Round tables on sustainability certification, production and use of biomethane

In the evening you can enjoy the beautiful venue Clontarf Castle at the closing evening event with a local Irish band, where you can get in touch with other participants, exchange knowledge and make new contacts.
