Biomethane has the same properties as natural gas, but it is a 100% renewable clean energy. To develop the sustainable production of this green gas at a local level, ENGIE has been developing the Gaya project for several years – a platform for producing biomethane from dry biomass (wood, straw, agricultural and food waste, etc.). Inaugurated in October 2017 at Saint-Fons in Chemical Valley, south of Lyon, Gaya is a key milestone in the development of so-called 2G (2nd Generation) biomethane.

France has set itself some ambitious targets for 2030: to increase the renewables contribution to total energy consumption to 40%, and boost the percentage of total gas consumption accounted for by gas from renewable sources to 10% . Power-to-Gas is an innovative technology that converts energy generated from renewable sources into gas to increase the contribution made by green electricity and gas to the French energy mix. We explain why the technique is a crucial part of the energy transition.
