US-EU Methane Agreement: How Big of a Deal?

Copyright © 2021 Energy Intelligence Group

The US and the EU have put forward what they’re calling the Global Methane Pledge to reduce methane emissions by 30% over 2020 levels. The move is significant in many ways, especially in its potential to calm disagreements on methane that have hampered investments and partnerships in the past. Yet the pledge does not — at least for now — include some major global methane emitters, and the instruments used to reach the targets may be too disperse at this stage to represent a technologically unified effort.
