Renewable natural gas (RNG)

Compliance  Audit 2021

Énergir commissioned the Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ) to conduct an independent audit of the accuracy and reliability of the RNG inventory available and sold to our customers. The objective of this process is to be transparent and provide our customers with an additional tool to confirm their purchase of renewable energy associated with greenhouse gas reduction. Énergir is proud to report that the compliance audit was successfully completed and validated by the BNQ for the 2021 calendar year:

  • There was sufficient RNG inventory to cover the sales billed to our customers and the inventory is managed properly – no molecule is more than 2 years old.
  • Each RNG molecule was purchased and sold only once
  • The origin of the RNG acquired and sold is 100% organic

This process will be repeated annually and will be initiated in early 2023 for the 2022 calendar year audit.

Énergir becomes RNG producer

Énergir is proud to announce a partnership with Nature Energy, a world leader in renewable energy, in order to co-develop biomethanation plants in Québec. This partnership is the result of the companies’ common desire to significantly increase the amount of RNG in the Québec natural gas distribution network and accelerate the pace of development of locally sourced renewable energy.

Under the agreement, Énergir and Nature Energy will co-develop and implement up to ten projects, in Québec’s high agricultural density regions, producing up to 200 million m3 of RNG per year. The projects would supply one third of Québec’s 2030 RNG target, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 400,000 tonnes. This is comparable to taking nearly 100,000 gasoline-powered cars off the road.
