Tools for local biogas development

Cities and regions can play an important role in supporting an increased use of biogas in the transport sector. The tools thay can use are public procurement, local policy measures and broad stakeholder networks.

This project has investigated what it takes to eliminate barriers and create incentives for biogas development, thereby contributing to the transition to a fossil free vehicle fleet. The purpose has been to give local decisionmakers efficient tools in their work. Conclusions derive from case studies in three Swedish Regions, and have been verified through stakeholders active in local biogas development projects.
