Green Gas Support Scheme: Extension announced!

In response to the recent consultation on the Green Gas Support Scheme (GGSS), government has announced that the scheme has now been extended to 31 March 2028 from its original date of 30 November 2025. It is hoped that this will provide prospective applicants sufficient time to apply for and commission on the scheme before it closes.

The Green Gas Support Scheme is a government environmental scheme designed to support the deployment of new anaerobic digestion (AD) biomethane plants to increase the proportion of green gas in the gas grid.

There are three stages to the application process:

  • Stage 1: Make an initial application via Ofgem's Green Gas Support Scheme Portal. If successful, you'll be awarded a Provisional Tariff Guarantee Notice (PTGN).​​
  • Stage 2: Submit financial close information. If successful, you are awarded a Tariff Guarantee (TG).
  • Stage 3: Submit a full application. This can only be made once you have injected gas to the grid and are fully commissioned. If approved, you are entitled to claim GGSS support.
