A new study has shown that in addition to propelling Québec's energy transition forward, renewable natural gas (RNG) production is a major driver for economic development in all regions of Québec. Those were the conclusions of a study conducted by Aviseo Consulting to evaluate the economic, tax and foundational impacts of RNG production for communities.

In an effort to assess the potential quantity of renewable natural gas (RNG) in Québec and determine the role that it could play in the energy transition, the consortium of WSP Canada and Deloitte conducted a study to evaluate the technical and economic potential for RNG production in Québec between now and 2030. This study, which was requested by Énergir, was overseen by a steering committee of key industry players. This group of experts included the Chair in Energy Sector Management - HEC Montréal, the Conseil de l'industrie forestière du Québec, Énergir, RECYC-QUÉBEC and the Union des producteurs agricoles.
Gaz Métro is proud to announce that, over the past several months, it has been conducting a demonstration project aimed at converting forestry biomass into second-generation renewable natural gas. The trials, carried out in collaboration with the British Columbia firm G4 Insights at the Natural Gas Technologies Centre in Boucherville, enabled us to develop a conversion process that is unique in the world and marks an important milestone in the development of new renewable energy technology in Québec.
