The fifth in a series of podcasts discussing our journey towards net zero.

Decarb Discussions podcast - How can biomethane help us achieve a net zero gas grid?

Victoria Mustard speaks to an industry expert about the role of biomethane in decarbonising our gas grid.  

Listen to the podcast

In our latest podcast, Decarbonisation Lead Victoria Mustard talks to a leading figure on biomethane within the gas industry.

John Baldwin is CNG Services’ Managing Director and along with his organisation, holds a wealth of knowledge on biomethane production and injection.  

Traditionally, biogas has been extracted from organic waste and burned to generate electricity.  

Now, with more electricity coming from renewables, there is the chance to give new purpose to biogas. It can be upgraded to biomethane, which can be injected into the gas grid to heat our buildings in a more sustainable way.  

In this episode, we’ll cover:  

  • biomethane generation and its role in the net zero transition
  • opportunities for developing the biomethane sector between now and 2050
  • the best applications for biomethane, and why injecting biomethane in the gas grid represents a virtuous example of circular economy
  • what support is available for biomethane producers
  • how the gas industry can support the growth of the biogas sector
  • why it’s crucial to improve the existing planning process to inject biomethane into the grid
  • how biomethane can co-exist with other ways of decarbonising the grid, such as hydrogen and electrification initiatives
