An EU binding biomethane target in the Gas Regulation is critical to support strategic energy autonomy and climate objectives

Ahead of the start of the trilogue on the Gas Decarbonisation Package, we call on Member States to support an ambitious and binding EU-level biomethane target of 35 bcm in 2030 in the Gas Regulation, in line with the REPowerEU Plan. Member States would be free to declinate according to their structural characteristics, resources potential and energy transition strategies.

This target, along with enabling conditions for the whole value chain, is critical to contribute to achieving decarbonisation of end uses, deliver on the Union’s 2030 energy and climate objectives and promote energy security.
