New Farming Biogas Podcasts: Fepro Farms and Clovermead Farms

Two new episodes of the Farming Biogas Podcast aired this month! In Episode 2 of the Farming Biogas Podcast, meet Paul Klaesi of Fepro Farms near Cobden, Ont., a pioneer in biogas generation. The farm milks 180 cows and uses both dairy manure and off-farm material to generate power. In Episode 3 of the Farming Biogas Podcast Korb Whale of Clovermead Farms describes how biodigestion was an attractive idea to move the farm towards self-sufficiency and a totally circular system.

Every Scenario in Canada’s Net-Zero Future Involves Biogas and RNG

Last year the Government of Canada joined more than 100 countries in pledging to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. On February 8, the Canadian Institute for Climate Choices, an independent climate advisory body, released its long-awaited report, Canada’s Net Zero Future: Finding our way in the global transition, on how Canada can fulfill that commitment. Using extensive modeling, the report details no fewer than 62 pathways for Canada to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, with each pathway using different combinations of technologies and abatement opportunities. Biogas and Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) are called upon in every single pathway. In other words, there is no scenario in which biogas and RNG will not be part of Canada’s net-zero future. Read more about the CBA’s take on the report in the latest Insights blog.

Four World Leaders in Gas Infrastructure Committed to the Fight Against Climate Change

Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas), Énergir, GRDF and GRTgaz, gas infrastructure sector leaders in California, Quebec and France, respectively, have collaborated for over two years on viable solutions and associated technologies to leverage the potential of gas grids to support the energy transition. A key objective has been to facilitate renewable gas production and injection into gas networks. These four energy leaders believe that renewable gas offers solutions to meet enhanced climate targets from short to long-term. They are committed to advancing natural gas sector decarbonization and supporting cost-effective, strategic development of renewable gas in their respective countries. In a position paper, they present this common vision of a holistic approach of the future of the energy system, and their recommendations.

Canada West Foundation Update on the federal Clean Fuel Standard

Just before Christmas, the federal government released its updated – and long awaited – draft regulations for the upcoming Clean Fuel Standard (CFS) in the Canada Gazette, Part I. Importantly, it revealed sweeping changes to the CFS that will significantly alter the impact of the policy across various sectors in Canada, as well as its contribution to GHG emissions reductions. The Canada West Foundation has prepared a new report, Update on the federal Clean Fuel Standard, to summarize the key changes as a follow up to our previous report, A citizen’s guide to the Clean Fuel Standard, released in early December. This new release also reviews the government’s cost analysis, which was publicly provided for the first time in the Gazette.
