Green energy company Good Energy is now offering ‘Green Gas’, thanks to dedicated biomethane shipper, Barrow Green Gas.

Its new gas offering – which is now 6% biomethane – is designed to make it easy for energy customers to take action against climate change.

The carbon neutral gas tariff was launched to coincide with the recent signing of the UN Climate Change Agreement.

Juliet Davenport, Good Energy founder, said: “World leaders made a huge promise in New York to take action against climate change. Emissions from energy are one of the biggest causes of global warming, and the simplest way to cut your footprint is switching to renewable electricity and carbon neutral gas.

“We can all do something to drastically cut our reliance on fossil fuels right now.”

Tim Davis, Managing Director, Barrow Green Gas, said: “Many of us have a big investment in our home’s gas central heating system, and nationally we’ve got a big investment in the gas grid. Biomethane provides a green option while continuing to use gas to heat our homes, using existing technology.

“We’re now helping more and more biomethane producers who have connected to the grid, find a market for their gas. Growing demand, from the general public and industry, will ensure that green gas maintains its position as the UK’s leading renewable heat technology.”

Today the UK is the fastest growing producer of biomethane with 65 plants injecting green gas into the national grid. A survey conducted by the Renewable Energy Association in April 2016 has shown that 84% of people in the UK would like to switch to using green gas in their homes.
