The GreenGasCert project team
The GreenGasCert project has brought together a team of experts from Irish and overseas research organisations to work together with the Irish renewable gas industry to develop a customised solution for Ireland.
DBFZ are the leading academic research centre for biogas and biomass in Germany. They have considerable experience in the development of methodologies to assess the sustainability of biogas and to calculate related emissions. Together with the project partners they have developed a customised greenhouse gas calculation methodology for the Irish certification scheme. www.dbfz.de/en
Dena are the German Energy Agency, a centre of expertise for energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and intelligent energy systems. They have developed, in cooperation with the project partners and with input from stakeholders, a blueprint for the operation of a biogas registry in Ireland. www.dena.de/en
The International Energy Research Centre (IERC) is an industry-led collaborative research centre in the field of integrated sustainable energy systems, and is jointly funded by the Irish government and industry members. The IERC has funded and overseen the GreenGasCert research project and has coordinated Irish project activities. www.ierc.ie
The Biofuels and Bioenergy research group of the Science Foundation Ireland MaREI Centre for Marine and Renewable Energy have carried out extensive research on the resource potential for green gas in Ireland. They have provided Irish data and research to the project and have led stakeholder engagement. www.marei.ie
The Renewable Gas Forum Ireland (RGFI) is an industry forum that represents the interests of those involved in the renewable gas supply chain across the island of Ireland. RGFI are a key industry partner in the GreenGasCert project and provide the industry input to the scheme design. www.renewablegasforum.com
Gas Networks Ireland (GNI) operate the Irish gas grid. GNI provide the gas network expertise to the project and they have engaged Irish industry to identify development opportunities for green gas. www.gasnetworks.ie
