MRV Webinar Series: The Role and Importance of MRV for Biogas Projects

Biogas

8 September 2022

Location: Webinar

Event Details:

Biogas projects—including those that capture and use methane emissions from the agriculture, municipal solid waste, and municipal wastewater sectors—are critical for mitigating climate change, enhancing energy security, and improving public health.

Many governments may find it difficult to account for biogas project emissions and emissions reductions. One key challenge is the limited access to clear guiding principles for measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) of emissions and emissions reductions from the biogas sector. An effective MRV system is critical for nations to develop robust emissions inventories and set ambitious mitigation targets under the Paris agreement.

This first webinar introduced the basics of MRV, discussed the big picture importance of MRV in the context of the Paris Climate Agreement, and highlighted GMI’s MRV resources, including the MRV Handbook and Resource Center.

Date and time: Thursday, 8 September 2022 | 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Panelists:

  1. Nick Elger – GMI Biogas Subcommittee Co-Chair, Environmental Protection Agency
  2. Neelam Singh – Senior Associate, World Resources Institute (WRI)
  3. Lisa Hanle – Independent Consultant, formerly the Enhanced Transparency Framework Coordinator at United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
