Green Gas certificate demand in the UK smashes the 1TWh barrier

By Bioenergy Insight.

Suppliers have now sold enough renewable gas through the Green Gas Certification Scheme (GGCS) to cover the annual consumption of 83,000 homes, cook 300 million Sunday roasts, or fry four billion eggs.

The scheme is announcing today that sales of its certificates have now hit 1 TWh.  

Increasing numbers of consumers are becoming aware that, just as they can buy renewable electricity ‘certificates’, the rapid growth in the number of plants injecting biomethane into the gas grid is opening opportunities to include green gas as part of their energy mix. 

Nearly all the leading business energy suppliers are now using the GGCS to offer green gas to their customers, with Corona Energy making the largest volume of sales to date.
