Setting a binding target for 11% renewable gas

Download the document

The Gas for Climate consortium published a policy paper which provides an analysis-based rationale on why an 11% renewable gas target is needed to meet the EU’s climate ambition to cut GHG emissions by 55% in 2030.

Gas for Climate calls on the European Commission to include an 11% renewable gas target with a sub-target of 3% for renewable hydrogen and a sub-target of 8% for biomethane in the RED II as soon as possible. This target would mean that at least 11% of all gas consumed in the EU by 2030 must be biomethane or renewable hydrogen. In line with current RED II Article 25 (1), member state shall set an obligation on fuel suppliers to ensure an overall share of renewable gas within the EU gas consumption of at least 11% by 2030.
