Sharp decrease in biogas plants in 2012 (Germany)


The biogas association (FvB, Fachverband Biogas) called the 2012 figures for the sector sobering.  After all surveys were obtained from the respective federal states , only 340 biogas plants have been newly installed, reported the biogas association (FvB). That is almost 74 % less than the construction of new plants in 2011. According to the information provided, 7,515 biogas plants in Germany with a total capacity of  3,352 MWel were in operation by the reference date of 31 December 2012.  An additional biogas capacity of 177 MWel is forecasted for the current year by FvB, assuming that for the first time the major part of the performance increase is caused by repowering and expansion measures rather than new plants.
