For biogas power plants to be used in a flexible way whenever there are power shortages in the near future, the plants need to be flexibilized. To make this economically viable, plant operators need government incentives.
In the face of the ongoing gas crisis, biogas is capable of delivering an important contribution to energy security in Germany. To scale the biogas production to the required level, however, new plants need to be built and existing capacities need to be ramped up as soon as possible.
The Wunsiedel energy park produces heat and power from renewable energies for the local population. To store the green electricity generated, the park’s electrolysis plant produces green hydrogen, which is converted into electricity whenever needed, thus guaranteeing security of supply.
To ensure reliable, affordable, and climate-friendly supply of heat and power for businesses and consumers in Germany in the future, the established, proven potential of renewable energies such as biogas needs to be expanded significantly and be utilized even more effectively.
The EU Commission is set to successfully roll out the EU Hydrogen Strategy and become climate-neutral on a long-term basis by 2050. MWM is in the process of introducing gensets in the output range from 400 kW to 4.5 MW, fueled by natural gas with a hydrogen admixture of up to 25 percent.
The EU Commission has presented its European Hydrogen Strategy in Brussels. The ambitious goal is to successfully roll out the EU Hydrogen Strategy by 2050. Hydrogen is thus set to become a key element of the European energy supply.
To draw attention to the sustainability and potential of the combustion engine with a view to a green energy transition, VDMA has initiated a campaign entitled “EMISSION0 – ON THE WAY TO 2050”. In the field of energy generation, the combustion engine will continue to play a key role in reducing emissions.
Through digital monitoring of CHP plants, plant operators can benefit from improved availability and efficiency on a long-term basis. Cogeneration power plant digitization enables location-independent monitoring of the plant in real time and identifies errors and problems, forestalling potential plant malfunction.
The use of biomass for energy generation can make a positive contribution to the energy reform. Especially biogas and biomethane from waste and leftovers offer a high potential for sustainable bioenergy production.
