The multi-talent of renewable energies

Energy from biomass has risen to become the most important renewable energy source alongside solar, hydro and wind power. Simple, clean, economical and thus forward-looking, biogas production is the all-rounder among renewable energies. Because only biogas can supply electricity, heat and biomethane regionally and supraregionally.

Since it has similar properties to natural gas, it can be fed into the natural gas grid as biomethane after appropriate processing and used for all applications – even as fuel for cars, trucks and buses. Unlike wind and solar energy, biogas can also be stored directly and can therefore be used flexibly in terms of time and space.

Biogas – energy source of the future

The course has been set. Biogas is becoming increasingly attractive, especially for energy suppliers, public utilities and municipalities. The liberalisation of the gas market opens up enormous opportunities for increasing the natural use of biogas, which can reduce dependence on natural gas imports.

According to estimates by the industry association, half of Germany’s natural gas imports from Russia are to be replaced by own production

Locally significant, internationally on the rise

The analysts of the major German financial institutions also agree and forecast significant growth for the biogas sector. Biogas plants make a significant contribution to regional development in terms of value creation, capital inflow, jobs and the preservation of farms. And biogas is also becoming increasingly popular internationally as a multi-talent among renewable energies – with technology “made in Germany”.

Five good reasons for your entry into biogas production


Biogas production enables an economically attractive utilisation of locally available resources. As an energy farmer or investor, you strengthen your region and rely on energy production with excellent prospects of return.

With the current political framework conditions and the increased demand for heat and gas from renewable energies, biogas is gaining massively in importance and offers the best prospects for the future.

Biogas is the most versatile and the only directly storable energy among the renewables. It therefore has a particularly large utilisation and marketing potential: as electricity and heat for regional supply, for feeding into the public grid and as biomethane.

Biomethane is becoming the alternative to imported natural gas. Those who produce biogas contribute to the decentralisation of energy supply and independence from international markets. Biogas is therefore becoming increasingly attractive for energy suppliers, municipal utilities and local authorities.

The production of biogas is environmentally and climate friendly. In addition to minimising nitrous oxide and greenhouse gases, the fermentation of manure also means active groundwater protection, as mineral fertilisers are substituted. Moreover, the energetic utilisation of renewable raw materials is CO2-neutral.
