In collaboration with industry partners spanning the entire value chain of biomethane, the Deutsche Energie-Agentur (dena) – the German Energy Agency – has developed the “biogaspartner” project. The aim of this project is to develop the leading platform for the injection of biogas into the natural gas network and the utilisation of injected biomethane. Stakeholders along the whole supply chain are joining the project to support the development of the young market. dena’s role in the project is to act as a facilitator and to provide a platform both for the acquisition and preparation of information and for its distribution both in Germany and abroad. The project’s market-oriented approach will supplement the efforts of the German market actors to establish biomethane as a fixed component of the future energy mix. The project started as a national initiative but by now also includes an international view.
