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.
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 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.
