The Canadian Biogas Association has created a new infographic, Facts about the Biogas Industry in Ontario, to illustrate the biogas industry in Ontario and opportunities for GHG reductions. The CBA has also released two reference sheets related to organics diversion – Municipal Requirements Related to the Food and Organic Waste Policy Statement and Organics Diversion Best Practices from Leading Jurisdictions. The materials are part of the CBA initiative Empowering Municipal RNG Market Participation to enhance municipalities’ readiness to participate in a meaningful way in the new energy landscape of the circular, low-carbon economy.

On November 29, the Ontario Government released a new made-in-Ontario environment plan to protect air, land and water and reduce litter and waste while lowering greenhouse gas emissions and helping communities protect themselves from climate change. Specific actions in the plan support biogas, RNG, and organic waste diversion, including requiring natural gas utilities to implement a voluntary renewable natural gas option for customers, consulting on the appropriateness of clean content requirements for RNG, and developing a proposal to ban food waste from landfills.
In an effort to assess the potential quantity of renewable natural gas (RNG) in Québec and determine the role that it could play in the energy transition, the consortium of WSP Canada and Deloitte conducted a study to evaluate the technical and economic potential for RNG production in Québec between now and 2030. This study, which was requested by Énergir, was overseen by a steering committee of key industry players. The results of the study are very promising, as they show that as of 2018, the technical and economic potential amounts to 25.8 million GJ, which corresponds to 12% of the volume of natural gas currently distributed by Énergir in Québec. By 2030, this percentage could increase fivefold through the implementation of developing technologies, reaching two-thirds of the current volume, i.e. 144.3 million GJ. These potential figures take into account an average purchase price for RNG of $15/GJ.
On November 22 the government of Alberta announced the new Small-Scale Generation Regulation. The regulation lays the groundwork to enable small-scale and community generation, providing flexibility for communities or organizations who want to generate electricity from renewable or alternative sources, such as solar, wind, and hydro. The Small-Scale Generation regulation makes the Community Generation Program possible where the Government of Alberta will be investing $200 million in Climate Leadership Plan funds over 20 years to launch the program.More News
