Beyond Hydrogen: Renewable Natural Gas and Deep Decarbonization
Even before Russia invaded Ukraine, sparking a global energy crisis, the International Energy Agency stated in 2021 that there should be no new development of oil, coal or gas projects if the world wants to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
One piece of global decarbonization is scaling the use of renewable natural gas (RNG), which can keep methane from sources such as in landfills, livestock farms, wastewater treatment facilities and food waste out of the atmosphere. RNG is already in use today and can be used in existing gas networks, and also has the potential to augment and support the development of green hydrogen.
This paper from Ameresco examines the current and future market prospects for RNG, including essential policy drivers, how RNG can complement and help drive the coming green hydrogen market and lessons from an existing RNG facility in Arizona.
