Biomethane – the renewable gas

Biomethane is renewable gas that can be produced from biowaste and energy crops. It is almost CO2-neutral, stabilizes natural cycles and generates added value and jobs in rural areas. Biomethane can be used to produce regenerative electricity, heat, as well as for fuel or ecogas in private households. Technically, there is no difference between biomethane and natural gas.

In Germany, there are now almost 200 plants feeding biomethane into the natural gas grid, accounting for about 1 percent of Germany’s overall gas requirement.

CHP-PLANT OPERATORS

CHP works with renewables, too!

Combined heat and power plants, and flexible gas plants, are cornerstones of the energy transition. In Germany, the Renewable Energy Sources Act enables economically competitive renewable CHP applications to run on biomethane. Existing CHP plants can still be refitted to run on biomethane even though conditions in the Renewable Energy Sources Act of 2014 turned out less advantageous than former versions – protecting existing plants is a basic principle of this Act. For new CHPplants the lately reformed Renewable Energy Sources Act of 2017 provides attractive conditions, as well.

Advantages at a glance:

  • Secure feed-in tariffs (in Germany: Renewable Energy Sources Act)
  • Contractually fixed biomethane price
  • Competitive heat price
  • Power generation on demand

NATURAL GAS STATIONS

Green mobility for your clients!

Offer your clients a climate-friendly and highly efficient alternative to fossil fuels – at the same price! All natural gas vehicles also run on biomethane; no technical modifications are necessary. Biomethane used as fuel is produced exclusively from waste, residues and manure; no energy crops are used. Biomethane as fuel can claim tax exemptions and is supported in the biofuels quota regulations.

Advantages at a glance:

  • Biofuel from waste and residues
  • Great CO2 balance
  • No technical adaptations necessary for gas stations or vehicles
  • Applicable for the biofuels quota
  • When marketing biofuel quota: renewables at fossil fuel prices
