The potential for low-carbon renewable methane in heating, power, and transport in Belgium

This study presents the production potential for renewable methane in Belgium in 2050. Belgium is developing the domestic energy and gas infrastructure policies necessary to comply with the recast Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) and its Paris Agreement commitments. This study assesses the long-term potential to produce renewable methane, and the associated production costs, in Belgium by 2050. In addition, the potential contribution of renewable methane to Belgium’s electricity, heating, and transport sectors is assessed, identifying the extent to which it can contribute to the country’s policy targets.
