George Webb, Chief Executive of UKLPG, the trade association for the LPG industry, comments on the release of A Plan for Wales’ Renewable Energy Future by the Institute of Welsh Affairs.


“UKLPG welcomes the report, specifically acknowledging the significant role that biogas can play in the decarbonisation agenda, especially in hard-to-heat rural homes located off the gas grid where a variety of technologies will be needed.

LPG is already the lowest carbon conventional energy source available to these off-grid homes, and provides immediate, expedient and cost-effective heat and energy. Switching to LPG today from oil and coal results in significant CO2 and air quality improvements, helping the UK reach its climate change objectives.

Further to this, the LPG industry has already begun rolling out bioLPG which delivers a long term low carbon solution for off-grid heat. Available for use now, bioLPG is derived from production processes that use a variety of biological materials as feedstocks, including waste streams. It is chemically indistinct from LPG and hence can be ‘dropped-in’ to existing supply chains and appliances.

We look forward to feeding into the study of feedstocks and highlighting the key role bioLPG can play in decarbonising heat across rural homes in Wales.”
