Renewable gas

At present, there is a clear political commitment in Spain for these technologies that had not been manifested to date.

Following in the footsteps of France, which has set the goal of a network with 100% renewable gas in 2050, Spain is already working to define a stable framework to make biomethane development a reality, as required by the European Green Pact , the National Integrated Energy and Climate Plan and the draft Law on Climate Change and Energy Transition.

In Spain, with just over 200 biogas plants and 2 biomethane plants operating, such as Portugal, with 64 biogas plants, they have a long way to go to achieve the objectives (Data in 2018 - EBA Statiscal Report 2019).

 

 
Spain managed to reduce its CO6,2 emissions by 2% in 2019. That is what the Advance of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, published by the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge at the beginning of summer, indicated. The final data will be produced throughout this fall, this figure supports the viability of using non-fossil energy sources.
At the 2020 European Biogas Conference, the great potential of biomethane was evidenced, providing renewable energy and helping rural development, in line with the European Green Pact. In statements by the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen: "For climate neutrality in 2050 we need a 100% renewable gas supply based on green gases, such as biomethane and hydrogen." 
The first meeting on the Iberian Peninsula exclusively for professionals in the sector related to renewable gas will be held in Valladolid, on September 21, 22 and 23, 2021.
The Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, through the Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving (IDAE), has approved the first calls for aid from the package to finance innovative projects of renewable technologies. More than 181 million euros will be allocated to support initiatives in seven regions of Spain:
