UK energy providers launch Green Gas Certification Scheme

A certification scheme aimed at eradicating the double-counting of registered biomethane has been launched by a group of UK energy providers.

Bio Group, British Gas, the National Grid and others are working together to launch a Green Gas Certification Scheme, which tracks biomethane through the supply chain from injection into the grid to customers, and then provides customers with a certificate.

Bio Group chief executive Steve Sharratt said: “[The scheme] provides certainty for consumers who buy the gas, confidence in the green gas sector and an incentive for gas producers to inject green gas into the grid.”

The scheme, which is open to green gas producers, suppliers and traders, will be run by Renewable Energy Assurance, a subsidiary of the Renewable Energy Association.
