How is renewable natural gas produced?


Organic waste is collected and transported to a biomethanation plant where it is converted into energy, i.e. renewable natural gas (RNG).

Injection into the network

RNG is injected into the traditional natural gas network. Renewable and traditional natural gas molecules intermingle and are interchangeable.

Purchasing RNG

By purchasing RNG, you reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) in Quebec and help drive the development of the RNG sector. Although we can’t guarantee that RNG is supplying your home, a portion of the RNG that flows through the network is attributed to you. And only you can claim that you are improving your carbon footprint with the purchase of this renewable energy.

Choosing renewable natural gas
is quick and easy.

Switch to clean energy without swapping out your appliances by choosing renewable natural gas—a type of energy that's produced entirely from organic waste and plays a direct role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Personalize your consumption according to your values

Adding renewable natural gas to your consumption profile is a simple and flexible process:

  • You may change or modify your Renewable Natural Gas consumption profile each 1st of the month with a minimum prior notice.
  • You won't need new appliances.

The benefits of renewable natural gas

10% of renewable natural gas in our network by 2030 = a reduction of 1 million tons of GHG

that's equal to 250,000 fewer cars on the road

We've got answers.

How do I know that I'm actually using renewable natural gas?

RNG and conventional natural gas flow through the same network, so they intermingle with each other. When you purchase any amount of RNG, that volume is guaranteed to be injected into the network, replacing a proportional amount of conventional natural gas. The volume you purchase is listed on the itemized invoice detailing your total consumption of natural gas.

The Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ) had verified the Énergir RNG supply and inventory

Why is there a difference in cost between natural gas and renewable natural gas?

The cost gap between renewable natural gas (RNG) and traditional natural gas is based on different production processes and costs, and on the availability of inventories in a context of high demand for renewable energy. 

As is the case with traditional natural gas, Énergir does not profit from the sale of the RNG molecule, and our teams make every effort to ensure it is supplied at the lowest cost to all our customers.

Do I need to modify any of my equipment to use renewable natural gas?

No. You don't need to buy or modify any equipment, because RNG and natural gas are interchangeable.

RNG meets our quality standards and can be used for the same purposes as natural gas.

Can I make changes to my consumption of renewable natural gas at any time?

You may modify your renewable natural gas consumption profile each 1st of the month with a minimum prior notice.

The modification request is made directly in the Customer Space, specifying the revised consumption percentage and the desired start date.

Is Énergir doing its part and using renewable natural gas for its own energy needs?

Énergir is following suit and has replaced the traditional natural gas used in nine of its business offices as well as three trucks in its fleet with RNG.
