Reforming Gas Sector Governance to Promote Biomethane Injection

Olivia Woolley

Several Member States of the European Union have taken measures to promote the injection of biomethane into natural gas grids, but its production is being restricted by the cost of network access and by pipeline capacity constraints. The article proposes new arrangements for governing gas networks that would address these difficulties, and, in doing so, provide support for the growth of a biomethane sector. It also argues that stronger legal intervention is required to ensure the displacement of natural gas by lower carbon alternatives in connection with mitigating climate change.
