The Danish biogas sector has gone from from 5 to 30 PJ in 8 years. The expand has been rapid and the knowledge gained is worth sharing. Therefore, the Danish Energy Agency has gathered all the available technology and policy supportive reports from 2013 to 2021 into a new overview.
This month, Denmark hit an alltime high share of biomethane in the natural gas grid. According to national TSO @Energinet 23% of the gas being used in Denmark was biomethane. The same number was 10% two years ago and 0% 6-7 years back.
This development is made possible through long term frameworks conditions and support, cooperation between stakeholders and a focus on innovation and optimization in the Danish biogas sector.
As part of the Biogas Go Global cooperation between Food & Bio Cluster Denmark, Trade Council on North America and Danish Energy Agency, Jonas Jürgens have put together an overview of all technology, sustainability and policy reports done with Danish Energy Agency involvement between 2013-2021 in one list of content.
In the last decade, biogas has expanded rapidly in Denmark. Through this period, The Danish Energy Agency (DEA) has built up an extensive knowledge base on both policy and technology, achieved through partnerships with stakeholders, especially in the Biogas Taskforce project.
This document provides an overview of this knowledge base and points towards future projects as well. It primarily includes projects funded by the DEA, or its research programme, the EUDP, but also projects where the DEA has been an important participant.
The projects are divided into three main categories:
As well as a fourth category on synthesis reports that combine the three elements above.
The Danish Energy Agency and Biogas Go Global are of course available for a discussion of the individual projects, and you can reach out to the original authors with questions as well.
The overview will be updated regularly as new reports and information is made available.
