We offer something pretty unique in the energy sector - green gas for your business.
From one plant to another, Green Gas or Biomethane is a type of gas that can be produced from a number of sources, including grass, landfill gas, and synthetic gas. These gases are captured, refined and then injected into the gas grid by green gas producers. Green Gas is a substitute for natural gas as it has the same characteristics and specifications as fossil gas.
Green Gas is created from a natural process called anaerobic digestion whereby organic material is converted into biomethane. This anaerobic digestion process is done by allowing bacteria to break down the organic material in an oxygen-free environment.
Green gas can be made from a number of biodegradable materials and the process for each differs slightly. Once the anaerobic digestion is complete, the CO2 is then removed and subject to meeting gas quality requirements gets injected into the national grid. This can then be used in existing gas appliances across the UK.
The number of green gas plants in the UK has risen from just one in 2013 to over 300 now, 60 of which are feeding directly into the grid. As this continues to grow, some expect over 95% of all domestic demand to be fulfilled by green gas by 2035.
When we extract and burn gas from fossil fuels, we’re reintroducing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere that has been locked away for millions of years causing climate damage but biomethane is produced from organic materials that absorbed carbon dioxide while they grew. This means when green gas is burned, it only releases that same amount of carbon dioxide. Since it doesn’t add more CO2 to the earth’s atmosphere, it’s a carbon-neutral.
Green gas can provide long-term financial security for British farmers by creating new opportunities, a fresh alternative to dairy and meat production which also accounts for 60% of farming’s greenhouse gas emissions.
It’s no secret that we’re very quickly depleting the earth of its natural fossil fuel collection. While we have animal waste, agricultural crops, food waste and… well, grass, green gas is a very sustainable alternative.
All green gas is tracked from production to consumption. The Green Gas Certification Scheme currently governs the process and allows you to view your certificate and find out more information such as the location and method of extraction.
We have made it easy for you to purchase green gas, simply choose from the following two options:
