The French Government gives a boost to renewable gas injection

Last 2 March, a ministerial order raised from 40% to 60% the level of coverage for the costs of connecting biomethane production facilities to gas networks, not to exceed a ceiling of €600,000.

With this decision, the Government has given an extra boost to the development of a renewable gas that both helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and contributes to France’s strategy to move away from dependence on fossil fuels. Thanks to the Government's strong support, the development of the biomethane sector has picked up considerably these past few months. This cost easing is expected to continue and help amplify the dynamic by facilitating the implementation of new projects and coverage across the entire territory.

Key figures

  • 3 TWh/year of renewable gas injected into the gas networks of the Hauts-de-France Region by 2025: that is the objective set in the CoRBi (Regional Collective for Injected Biomethane) roadmap.
  • 20% of our gas supply could be covered by renewable gases between now and 2030
