Enhancing Europe’s energy resistance has become a main objective of the EU, giving rise to the European Gas Demand Reduction Plan, proposed by the Commission. These coordinated demand reduction measures are intended to reduce gas consumption by 15% until next spring. Given the context, provided energy for the EU requires new alternative gas supplies. One feasible solution revolves around replacing gas with other fuels, safeguarding homes and essential users’ supply.
In this sense, the key purpose is to achieve energy savings during summer, by replacing gas with other fuels and subsequently storing it for the winter. The European Commission states that, “acting now will reduce the negative impact on GDP, by avoiding unexpected actions taking place in a subsequent crisis. Early action also spreads efforts over time, lessening market concerns and price volatility, as well as allowing for better design of targeted, cost-effective measures that protect the industry.”
In this context, an obvious dependence on non-renewable energies is not hard to notice. Giving rise to the need for a greater promotion of renewable energies, making us more independent, more sustainable and less harmful towards the planet. There are endless reasons that explain why their usage has turned into a matter of urgency.
Regarding renewable energies, there is one that covers the largest number of energy applications such as electricity, thermal or fuel, coming even with gas in terms of efficiency but being much more ecological. Naturally, we are talking about biogas.
At LIFE ECODIGESTION 2.0, we work to support the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, through the production of clean and renewable energy. We are grounded on the principles of reuse, use and optimization, giving a second life to everything that initially seemed worthless. Thus, plant and animal waste become one of the main renewable great utility sources.
