Political targets for biogas and biomethane production

In the  National Renewable Action Plan there are no specific quantitative targets with regard to the feed-in of biomethane or its use as biofuel and heat.

In March 2013, the Italian Government has published the "NATIONAL ENERGY STRATEGY: for more competitive and more sustainable energy".

In this document is possible to read 2 important steps regarding biomethane:

<It’ll be necessary to properly support the development of biomethane for using in transport>;
<It will be necessary, therefore, to create the conditions to ensure full competitiveness of biomethane, tradeable through the natural gas grid>.
