Directs the appropriate agency to conduct a study regarding the availability of renewable gas for use in the state by gas utility companies.
Examines projections of continued natural gas use and the zero-carbon fuels, details the state of the existing US natural gas pipeline network, and makes recommendations for minimizing leakage and refurbishing sections in the network.
Would require a study of renewable gas potential in the state.
Assesses the state of power-to-gas technologies, hydrogen applications in end-use sectors, developing a hydrogen supply chain, and makes recommendations to policy makers.
A non-profit organization composed of RNG industry members dedicated to the sustainable advancement of RNG or biogas-derived biomethane as an alternative and domestic energy resource.
Ameresco’s 2019 white paper offers the private sector insights on RNG suppliers, procurement options, and contracting models.
Finds that generation of biogas could be expanded to perhaps 3–5% of the total natural gas market at projected prices of $5–6/MMBtu.
Uses a thermodynamic balance to determine the total technical potential of RNG in the United States, as well as the future technical potential of methanation-derived RNG based on growth curves for renewable electricity.
