BP and Clean Energy Fuels Corp. have announced an agreement that will secure an increased supply of renewable natural gas (RNG) for Clean Energy through Clean Energy’s extensive fuelling infrastructure as more fleets are requesting the clean fuel.
The agreement enables BP to flow larger volumes to Clean Energy stations as the supply of RNG is expected to rapidly grow over the next several years with a number of new RNG production facilities under construction and more announced. In turn, Clean Energy will share in the incremental environmental credit revenues generated from the incremental RNG volume.
RNG fuel, or biomethane, is produced entirely from organic waste. As a fuel for natural gas vehicles it is estimated to result in 70% lower greenhouse gas emissions than from equivalent gasoline or diesel fuel vehicles. Clean Energy has grown sales of its Redeem™ branded RNG from 22 million gasoline equivalent gallons (GGEs) in 2014, the first full year it was available, to an expected 100 million GGEs in 2018.
Andrew J. Littlefair, Clean Energy’s President and Chief Executive Officer said: “This agreement combines BP’s significant investments in RNG projects and supply network with Clean Energy’s vehicle fuelling network and will help to create certainty for future RNG project development and continue to accelerate adoption of natural gas vehicle fuelling.”
