ERGaR at the European Parliament

Brussels, February 2024

On Wednesday this week, our Communication and Policy Officer Valentin Calfa participated in a roundtable discussion at the European Parliament organised in the framework of the Intergroup on Rural, Mountainous and Remote Areas (RUMRA) and Smart Villages on Biomethane – opportunities and challenges for decarbonising rural areas while developing the economy.

Many elements were discussed, including the link between agri-food and biomethane production, how to incentivise both production and consumption or how infrastructure can play it’s role in order to reach the 35 bcm target and contribute to the decarbonisation of the European Union and ensure independence from the Russian gas.

It was an insightful discussion that brought together farmers, energy companies, infrastructure providers and NGOs together with the European Parliament and the European Commission.

Certifying and trading the biomethane provides an additional value and incentivizes investments in the entire supply chain. The clear message from the roundtable was that the entire value chain must work together to further develop the market.

ERGaR is committed to working together with the biomethane value chain to further expand and harmonise the market, whilst helping the EU in its decarbonisation efforts.
