The first REGATRACE multi-stakeholder participatory workshop ”Biomethane/renewable gases vision – Spain” was organized by AEBIG in cooperation with the REGATRACE project, on 3 on-line sessions on March 2021.

The workshop involved almost 20 different key stakeholders of the biomethane field of Spain: traders and investors ( as AXPO, BP, CEPSA, ENGIE, NATURGY RENEWABLES, REPSOL and SUMA CAPITAL ), relevant national associations and technology centers ( as AEAS, AINIA, CIEMAT, FGER, IMDEA and SEDIGAS ), independent experts ( as Fernando Suarez, Jorge Tinas and Xavier Flotats ) and Government representatives of the MINISTRY OF ECOLOGICAL TRANSITION AND DEMOGRAPHIC CHALLENGE and the MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE, FISHERIES AND FOOD.

The objectives were:

  • SWOT analysis – define internal forces (i.e. strengths and weaknesses) and external forces (i.e. opportunities and threats) that may impact the future development of biomethane or the biomethane sector in Spain
  • Define a long-term strategic vision for biomethane sector in Spain

A SWOT analysis was performed with the all stakeholders participation. The stakeholders brainstormed on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats for the development of the Spanish biomethane sector. After the brainstorm, the ideas were discussed and structured.
