Update on the Gas Alliance relationship with Crouchlands Biogas (and PORE)

You may remember that following investigations into the links between Gas Alliance Group and Crouchland Biogas Ltd, a resident received a letter from the Gas Alliance Group sales director confirming that they,(including Gas Bus Alliance) no longer take biomethane from Crouchland Biogas and threatening legal action if we said otherwise. The letter also said that “should you require any further details or clari...fication, please do not hesitate to contact me”.

A concerned resident decided to take up this offer of clarification, but it seems this was not welcome - and instead, the following correspondence was received from solicitors stating their disappointment that the resident had contacted the Gas Alliance Group.

The letter reiterates that Gas Alliance have severed all links with Crouchland Biogas and that Barry Evans has resigned as a director of Crouchland Biogas. They go on to say that Gas Alliance customers only take biomethane from Gas Alliance and no one else. Unfortunately despite asking, they have still not confirmed where they source their biomethane, which would have helped allay our concerns.

We will of course keep a keen eye on the bus company’s supply chain, as we recognise that there are often several links in these chains. Ultimately, however, the source of the biomethane does need to be declared, so that any bus company must be able to show certificates proving where the biomethane comes from, in order to get subsidies. See the letter below the information about the internet auction.
