FROM START TO FINISH:

TAILOR-MADE SOLUTIONS FROM A SINGLE SOURCE

The biomethane value chain is complex. Approaches to generating revenue and the areas of application vary depending on the raw material – the support schemes are decisive here. Technologically, legally and economically – everything must be in order and work well together to ensure your biomethane product is also a success.

We are here to support you every step of the way. Benefit from our knowledge, our experience and our network.

PRODUCTION

Together with biogas producers, we at Landwärme develop tailor-made projects all across Europe to feed biogas into the natural gas grid in natural gas quality. We will support you throughout the various project implementation phases, from planning to permit acquisition, right over to construction and commissioning. We are also on hand to help you ensure optimal gas production.

TRADING

With a trading portfolio of more than 2.5 TWh of biomethane, we are one of the leading companies in the market. We have a broad portfolio of over 90 suppliers and can supply you, as a public utility, CHP plant operator, energy provider or natural gas station, with a variety of biomethane quantities and qualities – in line with your requests and objectives.

CONSULTATION

Whether as a general contractor or special “behind the scenes” consulting service, we can offer you a broad service portfolio spanning the entire value chain. Founded in 2007, Landwärme was one of the first companies to become established in the biomethane market. The company is owner-managed and therefore completely independent. We are active throughout Europe in all the relevant markets and, together with you, are keen to further develop new markets to make Europe’s gas even greener.

Biomethane Trading

Landwärme trades and sells biomethane in all quantities and qualities, for all kinds of applications both in Germany and abroad. We see ourselves as a biomethane supplier that also acts on behalf of producers, buyers and sellers. LESS >

CERTIFICATION

In order to partake in support schemes, detailed certificates must be procured for biomethane. We are competent and experienced in all current verification and certification systems across Europe. LESS >

We are experienced in all current certification systems!

Biomethane quantities must be documented and certified accurately and in detail. This certification is a prerequisite for financial support as set out in the EEG. It also provides the basis for fulfilling the requirements of the federal and state heating acts. We utilize the German Biogas Registry industry standard for the different certificates required under German heat and energy law. Sustainability aspects, which need to be fulfilled when selling biomethane as a fuel with respect to the biofuels quota, are documented via the “Nabisy-database” run by the Federal Office for Agriculture and Food. We are happy to arrange every step of the verification procedure for you, including:

  • Preparing the necessary paperwork
  • Cooperating with environmental consultants, auditors and public authorities
  • Planning and conducting the field inspections necessary for certification
  • Ensuring continuous documentation in the relevant databases

Balancing Group Management

Be part of Germany’s largest balancing group cooperation with Landwärme Service GmbH. We will include your biomethane in our accounting balance and take care of all questions regarding transportation and settlement. Profit from the balancing effects our large portfolio has to offer – in all market areas. Find out more about the services offered by Landwärme Service GmbH. LESS >

We balance your biomethane!

The transportation of biomethane is similar to natural gas. If biomethane is fed into the natural gas grid, in order to be transported to customers, it is essential that feed-in amounts are managed within a balancing group.

However, for operators or utilities with a small biomethane portfolio, it is often uneconomical to establish a separate balancing group. Since inflows and outflows are subject to fluctuation during the year, there are often differences during the year as a whole. For a small gas portfolio, balancing these fluctuations is both complex and inefficient.

Instead, you can benefit from our portfolio effects and cut your costs! We place your biomethane quantities into our balancing group and automatically even out any fluctuations in input and output across all market areas. In detail, we offer:

  • Balancing group management
  • Sales forecasts
  • Scheduling of trade processes
  • Settlements
