Feed-in of biogas

As from April 12, 2008, the feed-in of biogas into gas supply networks has been made considerably easier with amendments to the German Gas Network Access Ordinance – GasNZV, the German Gas Network Charges Ordinance – GasNEV, and the German Incentive Regulation Ordinance – ARegV.

Feeding in biogas provides the following benefits: 

  • GASCADE pays 0.75 €ct/kWh for the biogas fed in.
  • The network operator to whose network the biogas plant is to be connected carries 75 % of the capital expenditure for the network connection.
  •  This network operator carries 100 % of the following costs: Any necessary odorization or LPG conditioning, measurement of the gas properties, including all facilities necessary to do so, and the cost of operating and maintaining the entire network connection.

You would like to connect a biogas plant to our grid? Then you are welcome to do so. The regulations of § 33 of the Gas Network Access Ordinance (GasNZV) apply to a network connection.

Biogas plant operators have the following advantages: GASCADE covers 75 percent of the investment costs for the network connection. In addition, we bring the biogas up to natural gas quality. There are no costs for you here.
