Dan Gibson Renewable Gas – Vision for a Sustainable Gas Network

National Grid just released a white paper titled “Renewable Gas – Vision for a Sustainable Gas Network.” The research shows how 16% of natural gas demand in the four states National Grid serves (Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, New Hampshire) could be met by renewable gas, and focuses on the role of renewable gas in the clean energy future of the United States.

This paper covers renewable gas from beginning to end. Going into detail on what exactly renewable gas is, how it’s produced including potential sources, and even goes into some of the myths about the quality of renewable gas. The paper discusses a new project being developed and features a graphic that shows what a future sustainable gas network might look like.  The “Roadmap to Success” section provides some great information on what needs to be done to make the vision a reality.

Donald Chahbazpour from National Grid’s Sustainable Gas Group said, “So far, direct injection of renewable gas has been limited to a small number of projects in the United States. With this white paper, we are trying to demonstrate how, along with wind and solar, it is another option to meet the clean energy needs of the future.

“We also wanted to educate with this white paper, by clearly illustrating how renewable gas is produced and integrated into an existing natural gas network,” added Donald. The ability to deliver renewable gas using the current infrastructure is one of the main advantages people point to when talking about renewable gas.
