Argus European Renewable Gas Guarantee of Origin (RGGO) price assessments

RGGOs label the source of network-injected biomethane.

Use of biomethane can contribute to emissions abatement by collecting and cleaning methane-rich biogases from energy crop and waste products. This makes the fuel a readily available gaseous feedstock for the energy transition.

RGGOs enable uncommitted biomethane supply to change hands and can be transferred between an increasing number of national registries. This means a developing voluntary market, growing cross-border trade and interoperability.

Argus produces independent prices for RGGO wholesale trade.
