Here is a link to the background to this and the opportunity to give the government your views, if you think it is even worth bothering. The idea is to use biomethane to replace some of the naturally occurring methane. It is claimed that this will save 6% of the emissions of CO2 from the heating sector which in turn is about 30% of the UK emissions total. The government claim the levy will only add a small amount of up to £7 per year to gas bills, but is it really worth it to save such a relatively small amount of emissions, particularly when they are planning to phase out methane gas altogether?
