Ren-Gas is a clean energy developer that will build a decentralized, clean P2X gas production and distribution network in Finland for heavy transportation. Renewable fuels produced by Ren-Gas will reduce the use of fossil fuels in the heavy transportation sector by about 250 million litres per year, corresponding to about one-fifth of the total fuel consumption. The resulting clean fuel can reduce more than one million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year in the transport and energy sectors. Ren-Gas will procure more than 1,200 MW of new domestic wind power as the energy source for its P2X fuels.
