David Hurren, UK CEO, Air Liquide gives us a quick update on the state of play for biomethane going in to 2021 and a sneak peek about what you will hear during the Realising the potential of biomethane panel session at 10.30am on 16th February.
“The ADBA conference on 16-17 February will be a great opportunity to talk about the steps forward for Biomethane in the UK in 2020 and the opportunities to come in 2021 as we see increases in both production levels but also delivery into transport.
Despite the Covid crisis growth in the use of gas and specifically renewable gas into UK transport has shown its resilience with strong increase in deployment across the past 12 months and with no sign of stopping. The policy support for renewables into transport has worked effectively and we aim to share information on trends in adoption in UK which is the leading market in terms of bio to fossil in Europe along with some overview on how the market is developing across the continent.
We will also share output from the Low Emission Freight trial showing the tested performance and evidence on the clear advantages for HGV conversion in some key sectors. This should then lead to a review of the opportunity now and over coming decade for significant reductions in what has traditionally been a hard to decarbonise sector.
We will talk about Biomethane and other renewable gases alongside other solutions for other modes of transport such as buses, cars, aviation and trains. We are hoping this summary will power a healthy and constructive debate on what next for decarbonisation of HGV’s; on how to meet carbon budgets and where the road to net Zero might be leading for transport of all forms covering Trains, Planes & Automobiles.”
