Biogas in Europe

As gas seeks to demonstrate that it has a role in a decarbonized energy economy, biogas may become an important part of the industry’s argument in favour of a long-term role for the fuel. This Insight will describe the current state of the biogas industry in Europe, will examine the economics of biogas production and consumption, will explore the potential growth of the industry and will discuss the levels of government support that may be needed to provide a further boost to this relatively new source of supply. The paper will also question whether biogas will have a role within the existing gas network, or whether it is more likely to operate in a more decentralized system, perhaps providing an important back-up for local renewable energy supply.
