ERGaR is strongly committed to the facilitation and gradual creation of the Europe-wide cross-border trade of renewable gas certificates. In order to allow for more insight into the current situation, as well as to inform you on the development of our ERGaR CoO Scheme, we will regularly publish and update relevant statistics on our activities.
The number of transfers totalled more than 202 (as opposed to 11 in Q4 of 2021), while the amount transferred was 433 GWh (compared to 30 GWh in Q4 of 2021).
In the first quarter of 2022, all biomethane CoO were transferred to the German Biogasregister, while the highest volume of exports derived from the United Kingdom. It is worth noting that despite the small overall biomethane production in Austria, more than 10 GWh of biomethane CoO were transferred from the Biomethan Register Austria to the German Biogasregister.
Biomethane Production in Europe
The call for renewable energy is not only gaining traction, but is now understood as an elemental part of the green energy transition. As such, biomethane production across Europe is experiencing more interest and support.
In 2020, a total amount of 32 TWh of biomethane was produced. For more detailed and country-specific information, please consult the Biomethane Map of our member, the European Biogas Association.
