Renewable Gas Portfolio/Procurement Standards: State Leadership

In partnership with:

Many states have or are in the process of developing requirements that their natural gas utilities procure renewable natural gas to meet a specific percentage or volume of renewable gas they deliver to customers. Watch this webinar recording to hear from state policymakers who are leading the effort to pass these renewable gas requirements and learn about:

  • The challenges state lawmakers face in passing renewable gas portfolio requirements
  • The lessons that can be learned from states with existing RNG procurement targets
  • The benefits policymakers believe these policies and programs will bring to their communities


Renewable Gas 360The Renewable Gas 360 webinar series, held from June 2020 through February 2021, will provide continuous curriculum on the critical role renewable gases—renewable hydrogen, methane, propane and syngas—can play in helping states reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve carbon neutrality.
