Bioenergy and Renewable Natural Gas for Utilities - Energy - Energy Utilities
Everyone – from Governors to CEOs, ratepayers to shareholders – are demanding renewable energy solutions to curtail reliance on fossil fuels, reduce GHG emissions and insure local zero waste solutions. Throughout the United States, public power generators, governmental bodies, and energy cooperatives are being asked to supply their customers, communities and constituents with truly clean, truly sustainable and truly renewable natural gas. That’s why the use of anaerobic digestion is an answer increasingly embraced by state and local regulators as a sustainable non-fossil fuel solution, producing a consistent and true source of renewable natural gas while simultaneously lessening the burden on landfills, reducing the need for incineration, and mitigating waste-related water and soil contamination.

In 2019, the US Environmental Protection Agency estimated that anaerobic digesters operational in the United States are capable of supplying enough energy to power nearly 80,000 homes for a full year. Leveraging America’s residual organic and turning them into renewable energy could replace as much as 7 billion gallons of diesel used in transportation annually, generating up to 70,000 new jobs.
