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

This study presents the production potential for renewable methane in the Netherlands in 2050. The Netherlands is in the process of developing the domestic energy and gas infrastructure policies necessary to comply with both the recast Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) and the country’s Paris Agreement commitments. This study provides an independent estimate of the renewable methane production potential in the country and the cost of greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions through increased renewable methane deployment through 2050.
