NEW STATE SOLICITATION: In New York State, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced, according to the American Biogas Council (ABC), the largest renewable energy ad ever in the United States, offering “an incredible financing opportunity for biogas producers who can supply power to New York State`s power grid.” The call was launched by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and the New York Power Authority (NYPA). It requires a total of 4,000 megawatts of renewable marginal power, of which 1,500 MW are for large renewable energy projects near the earth, including biogas from landfills and anaerobic fermenters. In the United States, U.S. Gain, a leading company in the development, supply and distribution of renewable natural gas (RNG), has entered into an agreement to purchase RNG based on dairy and renewable products from Brightmark Energy LLC. The NMR is the fastest way to reduce emissions in the regions that need it most. U.S. Gain is rapidly expanding its NGR portfolio through a diversified approach to taketake agreements, financial assistance and capital investments – and says it is “continuously” looking for new opportunities for project collaboration. The terrestrial promotion of renewable energy is divided into two categories: projects purchased by NYSERDA and projects obtained by NYPA. NySERDA`s share provides for the development of Tier 1 renewable energy projects, which will generate 1.6 million MWh or more per year. NYPA`s appeal is limited to wind and solar projects. Any project that can be certified tier 1-renewable and commissioned after January 1, 2015 or until November 30, 2022, with the possibility of extension until November 30, 2025 to reach the kWh target, is eligible.
The following types of biogas development projects are considered Tier 1 energy sources and are therefore eligible for the NYSERDA`s application: if ABC: the call (RESRFP20-1) will be implemented in two stages, Including: NYSERDA opened the Step One qualification application on August 5, 2020 and is scheduled to be received electronically on Thursday, August 27, 2020 at 3 p.m. .m. For candidates admitted to Stage 2, offer proposals must be sent electronically to NYSERDA on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 .m AND by 3:00 p.m. Noblehurst Green Energy Digester in Livingston County, New York (above) Oregons NW Natural: On July 29, 2020, NW Natural, Oregon`s largest natural gas supplier, submitted a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the purchase of Renewable Natural Gas (NGR). The RFP is following the final rules of Oregon Senate 2019 Bill 98, which paves the way for natural gas suppliers in Oregon to procure NRGs for their customers. Responses are expected by September 4, 2020. U.S. Gain has extensive experience in regulatory programs that allow environmental credits to be seized when NRG is delivered as a transportation fuel, particularly the Federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) and the Oregon Clean Fuels Program (CFP). This experience combined with our relationships with the committed parties allows U.S. Gain to monetize credits at advanced values, bringing favorable returns to all project partners, said Bryan Nudelbacher, Director of Business Development at U.S.
