GreenPower, Jemena and Energy Networks Australia (ENA) are announcing their partnership on the Renewable Gas Certification Pilot Project to test how voluntary schemes can enable gas network customers to buy renewable gas.
The pilot project is the first step in developing voluntary markets for renewable gas. The project will design, deliver and run a renewable gas certificate registry that will enable gas network customers to buy renewable gas.
The aim of the pilot is to support industry initiatives to deliver renewable gas projects, such as Jemena’s biomethane injection project in Malabar, and inform the design of a potential future permanent renewable gas certification scheme.
The pilot is expected to start operating in early 2022 for approximately two years, helping inform future work to develop national certification standards.
