Shift to Green with Biogas

Date: Thursday, September 10, 2020 Time: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm ET

Each year, the number of companies and industries that recognize the benefits of biogas increases. Today, we feature two prominent ones: Anheuser-Busch and IndyCar’s Steinbrenner Andretti Racing. Anheuser-Busch just made a major announcement to fuel their fleet with renewable natural gas made from biogas and will discuss how they decided biogas and RNG needed to be a key part of their corporate strategy. Last year, ABC introduced Steinbrenner Andretti Racing to the high octane and wide-reaching benefits of biogas. They won’t switch the race cars yet, but enormous opportunities exist to power the venues, camps, and hospitality areas with renewable, biogas power, plus recycling food waste and fueling the heavy duty transports that move the race circuit around the country. In both cases, shifting to green energy helps to attract new customers and fans, and that means new revenue. Register: https://ttc.swoogo.com/biogasamericaslive/begin Already registered?

Corporate Carbon Challenge: How to buy renewable thermal energy

Date: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Time: 11:00 am - 1:00 pm ET

As a recent reporter put it, “this carbon challenge is bigger than cars, aviation and shipping combined.” Companies need to make their thermal energy needs low or zero carbon and one of the only solutions is biogas or RNG. More and more companies today realize that they need biogas or RNG to lower their carbon footprint and keep customers satisfied? This panel will reveal what that market looks like today and how industry has organized to make biogas/RNG purchases for thermal energy easier, auditable, and trackable.

Achieving Routine RNG Interconnection Processes for Utilities (presented by AGA)

Date: Thursday, September 17, 2020 Time: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm ET

RNG interconnection started in 1982, but has experienced a strong acceleration in the last couple years mostly thanks to policy.  Still, only 100 projects have connected to the natural gas grid.  What can be done to make interconnection more routine for utilities and what can the utilities with little experience with RNG learn from those who do?

Biogas' Role on the Path to Electrification

Date: Thursday, September 24, 2020 Time: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm ET

In the search for lower carbon energy, environmentalists and policymakers are driving the creating of narrow, electricity-only policies. However, real life is more complicated than these simple policies, especially when one looks closely at the transit, trucking, waste management, and state regulations.  What role should renewable natural gas play? Can it help in the path to 100% electrification?

Evaluating Project Risk and Derisking O&M for Reliable Production

Date: Tuesday, September 29, 2020 Time: 11:00 am - 1:00 pm ET

How does the industry derisk projects through best practices, safety, and operations and maintenance? How risky is policy? As the biogas market continues to expand, more financiers and underwriters are entering the market. All of them need to evaluate how risky a biogas project might be to price their services. And in parallel, how can the industry respond to derisk projects offer solutions that might avoid the need for a costly performance guarantee from an EPC?

Off-takers & Brokers: Who Do You Need to Make the Sale?

Date: Thursday, October 1, 2020 Time: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm ET

For most RNG policies, like the LCFS and RFS, you have to get your gas from your biogas system to vehicles.  But what happens in between?  If you have too many in the middle, profits decrease.  But those in the middle provide important value that can save you time and increase the final price paid for your gas. This session will cover a variety of different business models that can work for you, reflecting the wide variety of biogas systems in development, so you can pick what works best for you.
