The revised Renewable Energy Directive sets the target of at least 32% share of energy from renewable sources by 2030. Regions and cities are frontrunners in developing new techniques for the sustainable and circular use of their territories’ resources. As part of their story, biogas is a renewable source for the production of electricity, heat and transport fuel. The BiogasAction project aimed specifically to unlock the potential of Biogas for regions and cities. This webinar will provide insight into the BiogasAction approach and achievements. It will also be an opportunity to showcase how biogas is being integrated in European cities and regions.
