  • The 'UNUE' biomethane generation project, promoted by Enagás Renovable together with Suma Capital, has won the IENER22 Prize for the “Best Renewable Gas Energy Project” awarded by the Association of Energy Engineers Spain Chapter (AEE)

The objective of UNUE, the first project of this scale to be carried out in Spain by a private initiative, is to produce and inject approximately 20 GWh per year of biomethane into the Spanish Gas System, which means a positive environmental impact on waste management and, at the same time, an annual reduction in emissions equivalent to 4,500 tonnes of CO2.

The 'UNUE' plant, located in Villalonquéjar (Burgos), started commercial operations in September 2021 and its activity is aligned with the objectives of the European REPowerEU strategy, recently published by the European Commission. 

Biomethane, a renewable, local and storable source of energy supply, can be transported through existing gas infrastructures and has multiple energy uses, such as in energy-intensive industry and also as sustainable fuel for vehicles.

Enagás Renovable has a portfolio of more than 50 specific projects in Spain in the field of renewable gases and decarbonisation, making it one of the largest European platforms for renewable gas projects, which are in line with the Hydrogen and Biogas Roadmaps for Spain.
