12 associations welcome progress towards clear EU targets to accelerate renewable gases deployment

Press Release

Brussels, 8 March 2022 12 associations have welcomed the European Commission’s proposed target to scale up biomethane production to 35bcm by 2030 and boost the production of renewable hydrogen in Europe.

Following the launch of the European Commission’s Communication on more affordable, secure and sustainable energy, the group has noted these developments in particular as key steps forward.

The associations launched a joint call in 2021, highlighting the fact that the EU needs binding 2030 targets, which should reduce the GHG intensity of gas consumed and increase demand for renewable gas. Such targets would send clear signals to investors in terms of decarbonising gas and scaling up renewable gases. At the time of the original call binding 2030 targets were deemed urgent.
