Énergir calls upon renewable natural gas producers to increase its supply
Énergir has issued a new request for proposals for renewable natural gas (RNG) to increase the quantity of RNG in its gas system.
Since 2019, the Regulation Respecting the Quantity of Renewable Natural Gas to be Delivered by Distributor (c. R -6.01, r.4.3) requires gas distributors to deliver 5% of their RNG volumes for the fiscal year beginning October 2025 and 10% for the fiscal year beginning October 2030.
As a key player in Quebec’s energy transition, and in accordance with this regulation, Énergir is pursuing its supply of RNG through this request for information to meet these targets while reducing its GHG emissions.
This request for proposals aims to obtain long-term commitments for volumes between 2,5 and 3,6 million MMBtu annually with desired deliveries before October 1, 2024.
This request for proposals will be carried out in two phases :
  • Bidders will submit their responses to the Request for Information (RFI) by November 18, 2022.
  • Énergir will then invite the selected projects to participate in request for proposals (RFP) that will take place during the winter. The objective is to contract volumes by the end of spring 2023.
Details for this request for information
This request targets RNG producers :
  • Located in Quebec or anywhere in North America
  • Able to commit for first deliveries on October 2024
  • Producing RNG from organic feedstock (farming, landfills, municipalities, industrials, forestry, others)      
Project developers are invited to submit their response to the Request for Information (RFI) via email to aognr@energir.com by November 18, 2022.
Documents for the preparation and submission of a response to the request for information are available: energir.com/aognr
As a reminder: Only selected projects will be invited by Énergir to participate in the second phase of this RFP by submitting a detailed offer in January 2023.
