‘Huge milestone’ for biogas as IEA highlights industry value in latest renewables report


Biogas and biomethane has been recognised by one of the world’s leading energy authorities after its inclusion in a special section of the International Energy Agency (IEA)’s Renewables Report 2023.

Based on the IEA’s primary analysis on the renewables sector, the report forecasts the deployment of renewable energy technologies in electricity, transport and heat to 2028, while also exploring challenges to the industry and identifying areas of growth.
