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.
