Biogas barometer 2020

BaroBiogaz2020+ 0,7 % Biogas primary energy production growth in the EU 28 between 2018 and 2019
Primary energy production from biogas in the EU28 countries has increased only slightly since 2017. According to EurObserv’ER, output reached 16.6 Mtoe in 2019, which is marginally higher than in 2018, butaround the same level as in 2017. The rollout of regulations less supportive of using food-type energy crops for producing biogas has fuelled this general trend and has been compounded by the limitation on the capacity allocated to biogas tenders and less attractive biogas electricity payment terms. Nonetheless some member countries have posted positive output growth, thanks to their determination to both encourage biomethane injection and recover energy from fermentable waste.
