Biogas plants replace two nuclear power plants


Biogas plants are very trendy. At the end of 2011 five million households could be supplied with the total plant power which meanwhile replaces two nuclear power plants.

7100 biogas plants with an installed capacity of approximately 2800 MW produced power from plant or animal biomass in Germany at the end of 2011. They provided enough energy for more than five million housholds and cover about 3% of the German power consumption. This was recently announced by the German Ministry of Nutrition, Agriculture and Consumer Protection.
