Énergir Development and Nature Energy Join Forces to Co-develop Biomethanation Plants in Québec
Énergir, a diversified energy business, and Nature Energy, a world leader in renewable energy, are joining forces to co-develop biomethanisation plants in Québec. This partnership is the result of the companies’ common desire to significantly increase the amount of RNG in the Québec natural gas distribution network and accelerate the pace of development of locally sourced renewable energy. Under the agreement, Énergir and Nature Energy will co-develop and implement up to ten projects, in Québec’s high agricultural density regions, producing up to 200 million m3 of RNG per year. The projects would supply one third of Québec’s 2030 RNG target, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 400,000 tonnes. This is comparable to taking nearly 100,000 gasoline-powered cars off the road.
