biogaspartner – the Biogas Feed-in Platform

as follows: The biomethane industry wanted to advance the feeding-in of biogas into the German natural gas network. Unlike wind and solar energy, biogas is continuously available and can enrich the energy mix. But the use of biogas also raises a large number of controversial issues: Which processes are [...] suited, which raw materials result in the best climate footprint and profitability, and where does biogas contribute the most towards realising the energy transition? One example of the use of fed-in biogas is in combined heat and power generation (CHP). In this scenario,  the gas is used both for generating [...] creating the market-oriented platform for biogas feed-in, dena sent out a signal to initiate optimisation processes. By bringing together major players from industry, the sciences, and society on the platform, industry-specific know-how is consolidated. The Biogas Partnership is based on three core points
