IERC launches a Call on Green Gas Certification

The International Energy Research Centre (IERC) calls for expressions of interest for research project management in the development of a Green Gas Certification solution for Ireland under a IERC T2 collaborative research project. 

This is an open call to national and international applicants in research organisations. Researchers, institutions and non-profit research organisations are welcome to apply. The call seeks for a lead Principal Investigator (PI) that will be required to work collaboratively with Co-PI’s, the industry consortium and the IERC to complete a detailed project plan and full costing to detail how it will be achieved.

The aim of the research project is the development of a complete Green Gas Certification Scheme by developing of a robust methodology (that considers different feedstocks/ processes and potentially end uses) for calculating and accounting for GHG emissions savings from renewable gas and is compatible with international best practice and EU legislation. The project would also represent the basis to assess an appropriate mechanism, methods and processes of accounting for the carbon credits which will connect in a credible manner the Green Gas certificates with the ETS.

The call was launched on 24th June and will run until the 12th August 2016.
