National Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) Handbook

A Resource for Canadian Municipalities
RNG Handbook

An Applied Resource for Canadian Municipalities on the Implementation of Renewable Natural Gas

May 2020

Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) presents a unique opportunity not only to tackle GHG emissions and improve local air quality, but also to advance a circular economy for municipalities. When implemented on a municipal scale, biomethane can also be injected into local gas utility distribution systems as RNG, given its chemical similarity to fossil natural gas.  

Ideal for municipal officials and staff, our RNG Handbook reviews RNG sources, production, benefits, and provides an outline for RNG project planning and implementation.

The Webinar

On May 25th, QUEST, CGA, and CBA held a webinar to present the key findings of the Handbook. Tom McLenaghan, Program Manager, New Infrastructure – Waste Management Division of the Region of Peel shared their experience with the Anaerobic Digestion Facility Project.

Enabling Low-Carbon Energy Projects for Investments

Enabling Low-Carbon Energy Projects for Investments

Communities in Canada are increasingly developing local, low-carbon energy projects, but many face road-blocks with regards to financing. Simultaneously, Canadian investors are seeking low-carbon investments, but are challenged to find local opportunities at scale for investment. The Enabling Low Carbon Energy Projects for Investment (ELCEPI) research project aims to offer recommendations and solutions to close these financing gaps, while connecting the barriers and enablers for investment to larger socio-economic issues.

New Brunswick Smart Energy Communities Accelerator Pilot Program

Programme pilote d’accélération des collectivités écoénergétiques intelligentes au Nouveau-Brunswick

Le programme pilote ACEI NB a réussi à mettre en place un accélérateur de planification énergétique communautaire pour aider une série de communautés du Nouveau-Brunswick et une Première nation, en leur fournissant les outils et les connaissances nécessaires pour élaborer et mettre en œuvre des plans énergétiques communautaires et comprendre l'avantage économique net qu'ils peuvent apporter.
