The European Commission and industry leaders, committed to the green energy transition, have launched last week the Biomethane Industrial Partnership (BIP). This new public-private partnership was announced in the REPowerEU Plan and it aims to support the achievement of the target to increase annual production and use of biomethane to 35 billion cubic metres by 2030. This will reduce Europe’s dependency on natural gas from Russia in a cost-effective way. At the same time, it will substantially contribute to an integrated net-zero energy system, diversifying farmer’s incomes and ensuring a circular approach.
The Biomethane Industrial Partnership is open to all interested stakeholders that wish to work towards achieving its objective. All EU countries are invited to join the Biomethane Industrial Partnership, together with companies, industry associations, academia and civil society organisations.
Join us in Amsterdam and hear from Harmen Dekker, CEO of European Biogas Association and Jean-Marie Gauthey, Head of European Affairs of GRDF on Day 1 focusing on: Evaluating the Radical Shift in European Biogas Policy and Likely Outcomes.
CEO of European Biogas Association

They will be sharing insights on:
- Addressing the changes to regulations and policy, as well as causes and probable effects, with an outlook towards reaching zero emissions by 2050.
- Responding to "RePowerEU" and targets to produce 35 bcm by 2030.
- Discussing Taxonomy and the role of biogas within the "Fit for 55" plan. How is biogas being taken care of? What will be the impact with reduction in dependence on Russian gas?
