In the Fast Lane with Biomethane in Transport Webinar

The EBA and NGVA are hosting a webinar highlighting biogas as an alternative to fossil fuels in the transport sector.

The European Biogas Association (EBA) and the Natural & bio Gas Vehicle Association (NGVA Europe) are inviting you to join their webinar ‘In the fast lane with Biomethane in Transport’. The webinar will be held on Wednesday, 8 July 2020 from 9:30 to 11:00 CET (8:30 to 10:00 Irish time).

According to the EBA and NGVA Europe, the decarbonising of the transport industry is essential in order for each member state to achieve the ambitious EU climate targets. The use of biomethane in transport would support Europe in it’s clean energy transition.

Biogas, or renewable gases, are the leading alternative fuel type which can significantly reduce CO2 in the transport sector, while reaching carbon neutral mobility. The webinar follows the recently launched new EBA – NGVA Europe leaflet which focuses on the current uptake and future potential of biomethane in a decarbonised transport sector.

The invitation to the webinar will follow shortly and will include the detailed program and login details. For now, you can save the event in your calendar here.

New Online Training Courses and Webinars

Tipperary Energy Agency have recently launched two CPD accredited online courses and two webinars.

Specification & Design of Heating Systems with Heat Pumps Online Course

The course aims to enhance the knowledge base of the construction sector in Ireland with respect to heat pumps in homes and commercial buildings.

There are a large number of different types of heat pump heating systems available with a myriad of emitters and controls that require more knowledge than before in appliance selection and design as part of an integrated design of renovations and low energy buildings. Full details here.
