Green Gas Support Scheme (GGSS)
Closing Date: –
This scheme provides tariff support for biomethane produced via anaerobic digestion, in England, Scotland and Wales, which is injected into the gas grid.
The Green Gas Support Scheme (GGSS) provides tariff support for plants producing biomethane via anaerobic digestion which is injected into the gas grid. Tariffs are calculated to compensate plants for the building of new infrastructure to produce biomethane and ongoing operation costs.
The scheme is intended to help decarbonise Great Britain’s gas supplies by increasing the proportion of ‘green’ gas in the grid. During peak years of production, biomethane plants incentivised by the GGSS will produce enough green gas to heat around 200,000 homes. The GGSS is expected to contribute 3.7 million tons of CO2 equivalent of carbon savings over Carbon Budgets 4 and 5, and 8.2 million tons of CO2 equivalent of carbon savings over its lifetime. This is equivalent to taking approximately 3.6 million cars off the road for a year.
The Government expects the GGSS to help support high quality jobs in the renewable energy sector, at a time when economic recovery is so important.
