Understanding the energy transition and the energy mix
The energy transition has become a necessity in France and throughout the world, in order to enable us to change the way in which we consume energy. It enables us to produce energy from renewable non-fossil resources, which are inexhaustible and do not emit any greenhouse gas. Accordingly, the emergence of green energy solutions is a necessity. Biomethane, including biomethane from dry biomass-to-gas, which concerns us here, is a solution, just like wind power, solar power, hydraulic power or geothermal power.
What does the “energy mix” mean? The energy mix consists in all the “conventional” and renewable energy resources used to meet our energy needs. Transition to a low-carbon economy means a change in the energy mix.
The most polluting energies, like coal or oil, are gradually being replaced by renewable energies. Energy-efficiency, which aims to reduce the amount of energy consumed for the same purpose, will also contribute towards reducing use of the most polluting fossil fuels.
Gaya will provide a totally clean and renewable energy produced from natural and local biomass resources. Its aim is to ensure the development of an energy that is additional to other energies. Research, experiments, and pre-industrial trials will enable to maximize its costs, its yield, and its environmental benefits.
