Municipal buses powered by renewable gas: Paris and Bristol

Bristol and Paris are two cities that exemplify a firm committed to biomethane as an ecological fuel.

In Paris, the RATP bus operator already has a fleet of 140 biomethane-powered buses under the BUS2025 Plan.

Similarly, the city of Bristol has a fleet of 77 buses powered by this renewable gas from the First Group company.

The potential of biogas as agricultural fuel

Italy has 20 projects for biomethane liquefaction plants from agricultural waste. The first one started operating in March and biomethane will be used exclusively in the transport sector. The New Holland company drives the development of biomethane as a fuel for agriculture, guaranteeing the energy dependence of farmers thanks to its first tractors powered by this fuel.

Hydrogen mobility: an increasingly present future

Hydrogen represents an emission-free, electric mobility solution with great autonomies, fast refueling and that can be used in any type of vehicle, from tourism, to buses or trucks. We will talk about the commitment of the manufacturers Toyota and IVECO for this technology and the levers that will drive the development of the supply infrastructure in Spain with Redexis.

Are there real alternatives to LNG in shipping?

There is a growing consensus that LNG is the best solution to start the path towards the decarbonisation of shipping. But are there alternatives that can match its scalability and emissions profile? What will be the role of LNG compared to other fuels that are currently available, H2, Ammonia or Methanol? What are the alternatives prepared to compete with the economic, commercial and environmental viability of LNG?

Conference ‘An hybrid future’, by Marcelino Oreja, Enagás CEO

The recent pandemic that we have suffered has subjected our society, and especially our economy, to a “resilience stress” test, a test that has identified notable opportunities for improvement, especially with regard to our agility to adapt and face increasingly demanding scenarios in the shortest possible time. Mobility, the aggregate economic activity with the greatest impact on the environment, must manage to resolve the current imbalance between its growth and the ability to reduce its impact through efficiency measures around the “fuel engine” binomial, a binomial so that there are no unique or extrapolated solutions, where, as in other economic activities, the solution will come from the hybridization of alternatives suitable to the particularities of each segment and where the adequate hybridization of natural gas and renewable gases have the least abatement cost and therefore the most appropriate to an environment of global economic crisis that cannot serve as an excuse to guarantee a decarbonized future that does not mean limiting human activity.

Impact of the new CNMC circulars on land and sea transport

Since April 1, 2020, the Spanish gas system has modified its operating model, as a consequence of the application of the Access and Balance Circulars approved by the CNMC between 2019 and 2020. The creation of the Virtual Balance Tank, TVB, a pioneering initiative worldwide, is bringing an increase in the competitiveness, liquidity and flexibility of our regasification plants, and a consequent boost to the development of gas solutions for transportation, both maritime and terrestrial.

LNG as a fuel, challenges and opportunities for greener Very Large Container Vessels

Now that the first very large dual fuel container vessels are being delivered, it is time to look back at the process that leads to the decisions of investment. The forerunners have paved the way for the ones that are now taking their turn to step in LNG as Marine Fuel, the presentation will detail the key points that a ship-owner should address to make its container project a success.

BioLNG and SNG (synthetic gas), a viable path towards decarbonization

Steve Esau, SEA\LNG general manager

The shipping industry faces unprecedented challenges in meeting the decarbonization targets set by OMI.

LBM liquefied biomethane produced from biomass or LSM liquefied synthetic methane produced from renewable electricity along with LNG may be a solution.

In this presentation we will learn from Steve Esau, the findings of the study promoted by SeaLng that performs a rigorous analysis of the supply capacity, scalability and potential cost of these zero-emission fuels.

LNG bunkering in Spain: ship to ship, SIMOPS operations and multitruck to ship

Moderator: Álvaro Rodríguez Dapena. State Ports Technical Director

Ignacio Álvarez-Ossorio, Port of Huelva director

Ramón Barturen, Shell responsible for Small Scale LNG trading

Spain has successfully positioned itself  in 2019 as a benchmark in Europe for supplying LNG to ships. Ship-to-ship, truck-to-ship and now multi-truck-to-ship operations are carried out daily in our ports. At this panel, several Spanish ports together with Shell, a pioneering company in bunkering ship to ship in Spain, will share with us their experience and vision of the future.

The potential of landfill biogas treated in biomethane and its application in land and sea transport

With its WAGABOX technology, Waga Energy valorises landfill biogas in the form of biomethane. They currently have nine biomethane injection points in the French gas grid and are working on projects for the production of bioLNG and its application to mobility.

Renewable hydrogen: injection into the natural gas grid and application to mobility

Hydrogen is going to play a key role in decarbonizing the economy and the gas infrastructure is presented as the best solution for its storage and distribution to the final customer. For this reason, knowing the tolerance level of natural gas grid to the transport of hydrogen in high concentrations is essential to increase the potential of gas grid. Different studies have been carried out on this matter but the HIGSS project goes one step further with the main objective of developing a test bench that allows testing the different elements of the transport network at different levels of H2 concentration. This will undoubtedly consolidate the knowledge of the acceptance of the European gas grid to the hydrogen content.

Manuel Arias, Scania responsible for Transport and Sustainable Mobility

Jesús Gil,  Enagás director of Innovation and New Energies

This discussion panel will present the advantages of having an official certificate of guarantee of origin of renewable gas. The speakers will provide the vision of the different steps of a renewable gas generation project from production, injection to the gas grid, and the contracting process by the end user, through a gas marketer, to be used in mobility. Real cases of how this process is currently working in different European countries will be presented. Nowadays, 17% of the gas used in mobility is already of renewable origin, and we will analyze the methodology used for its certification.
