  14. 14. SERVICE MIT ENERGIE. Motivation >5000 biogas plants with 2200 MWe installed electrical capacity in Germany à ~2300 MWth capacity potential Current degree of heat utilisation: ~50%, often only to a small degree and/or to heat some buildings Using the heat Increased degree of utilisation improved economics Relating the heat sales price to market prices of fossile energy carriers à Improved hedging of economic risks Fixed EEG-tarifs + market volatile heat revenues à hedging of substrate market prices© KWA EVIVA GMBH 2010 Eviva nachhaltige Energiedienstleistungen

  18. 18. SERVICE MIT ENERGIE. Solution: local biogas grids less thermal losses more economic for small/medium size biogas plants (<1000 kWe) when heat off-take can be increased significantly and distances <3 km Biogas grid costs 1/3 compared to heating grid Additional costs for compressor and auxiliary material Operational costs higher Versatile: possibility to connect more biogas plants on one biogas pipeline Safety important Pipeline must be errected und operated according to DVGW-rules Construction by DVGW-enterprises Operation with 24 h availability DVGW materials (PE)© KWA EVIVA GMBH 2010 Eviva nachhaltige Energiedienstleistungen

Ins & outs External heat supply for fermenter necessary Safety regulations for gas grids (e.g. 24h support) Often additional CHP unit needed Versatile connect several biogas plants to one grid Q: Selling biogas or electricity and heat?© KWA EVIVA GMBH 2010 Eviva nachhaltige Energiedienstleistungen
  25. 25. SERVICE MIT ENERGIE. Summary and Conclusions Many biogas plants utilise the available heat insufficiently Large economic potential to make use of waste heat from CHP units EEG and prices of fossile energy carriers call for biogas heat solutions Biogas grids can be an economically attractive option to increase the degree of utilisation of the energy content of biogas with less haet losses compared to heating grids© KWA EVIVA GMBH 2010 Eviva nachhaltige Energiedienstleistungen
