TargetsforBiomethaneinGermany.
Biomethane became part of overall national energy and
climate programme (1 action point out of 29) in 2007 climate programme (1 action point out of 29) in 2007
Mix of measures focussing on (a) grid access and (b) developing
demand markets
Targets are set in the Gas Grid Access Ordinance:
2020: 6%; 2030: 10% of todays German natural gas consumption
60 billion kWh (2020) resp. 100 billion kWh (2030)

Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG)
P d d f bi i th f th EEG i Power produced from biogas in the sense of the EEG is
applicable for feed-in tariffs if used in CHP processes
Various boni support biogas feed-in, such as the technology

Renewable Energies Heat Act (EEWrmeG)
Buildings erected after January 1st 2010 are obliged to Buildings erected after January 1st, 2010, are obliged to
employ renewable energies for their heat supply
Biomethane is one way to fulfill this obligation
Baden-Wrttemberg has its own version of this law
(EWrmeG), applying also to existing buildings

Lessonslearned.
Political framework builds on existing schemes that are adapted to
the biomethane case the biomethane - case
Ambitious targets 2020/2030 require strong increase in installation
rates per year: approx 100 installations per year necessary for rates per year: approx. 100 installations per year necessary for
target fulfilment
Targets demand significant investments into the sector, until 2020
approx. 12 billion in plants and equipment
Almost all realized and planned projects demand cooperations

StartingPoint:Verticalallianceascriticalsuccessfactor.
Situation: Need for Cooperation due to
Extended value chain & Different businesses involved
Required biomass input over project life-time
Economic requirements: Profit margin requires operational
efficiency on all levels
Approach: Focus on key business & experience leads to overall
high level of operational efficiency
Requirement: Reliable partnership & cooperation models
