Germany Has Installed Highest Amount of Biogas Capacity Since 2001
January 22nd, 2013
Global Biogas Power Market - Moderate Growth Expected Between 2012 and 2025
The global biogas market is driven by supportive policies from governments worldwide, which are investing in biogas and related technologies in order to ensure the stability and security of energy supply and curb carbon emissions. In the wake of increasing energy security and environmental concerns, support mechanisms in favor of biogas and related technologies are expected to be strengthened in most nations. This is expected to drive the global biogas market to continue its growth momentum in coming years. The biogas power market registered considerable growth between 2001 and 2011, with the cumulative installed capacity increasing from 2,388 Megawatts (MW) in 2001 to 8,377 MW in 2011 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.4%. Cumulative installed capacity is projected to register moderate growth over the forecast period, with cumulative installed capacity expected to reach 22,040 MW by 2025, increasing at a CAGR of 7.2%.
Germany, the US and the UK Contribute More than Half of Biogas Installed Capacity
Germany leads the global biogas market with a capacity share of 28.1% as of 2011, followed by the US and the UK with respective shares of 17.9% and 15.5%. The figure below provides the shares of the global biogas market accounted for by major countries in 2011.
Germany has Installed Highest Amount of Biogas Capacity Since 2001
Germany is the leading biogas power producer in the world, accounting for more than 25% of global biogas power installed capacity in 2011. In Germany, biogas power also contributed around 3.7% to the countrys renewable power capacity in 2011. Germany installed around 2,247 MW between 2001 and 2011. These capacity additions can be attributed primarily to the strong policy support provided by the German government in the form of tariffs for biogas electricity producers. The government has been instrumental in developing the biogas electricity market in the country through the development and operation of agricultural methanization plants. Furthermore, the support provided for the production of energy crops for use in biogas electricity generation has contributed to the growth of the biogas market in the country.
Landfill is a Popular Source of Biogas in Most Countries
Methane gas produced from landfills is one of the most established sources of biogas for power generation and heating purposes. The US, the UK, Canada, and Australia are some of the countries that make extensive use of landfill gas for power generation. In Australia, power from bagasse is followed by landfill methane, which accounts for 20% of cumulative installed capacity. In Canada, landfill gas and anaerobic digestion (gasifier) is used for biogas installed capacity. Landfill contributes a major share with 99.8%, while anaerobic digestion held a minor share of 0.2% of total biogas power cumulative installed capacity in 2011. Landfill gas accounts for 2.2% of total biopower production in Germany, whereas sewage sludge gas accounts for a 3.4% share of the countrys total biopower production in 2010. In Indias off-grid biopower market, agricultural waste and biomass gasifiers are the major types of feedstock used. Biomass gasifiers and Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)/industrial waste accounted for respective shares of 25% and 16% of the offgrid biopower capacity, with cumulative installed bases of 146 MW and 93 MW. In the UK, landfill gas accounted for 33.7% of total biopower installed capacity in the country in 2011, and sewage sludge gas accounted for a 6% share of the countrys total biopower installed capacity in 2011. In the US, the main feedstocks used for biopower generation are wood waste and MSW. Landfill gas accounts for a 15% share in US biopower generation. There are 76 biogas plants generating power in Finland, of which 76 biogas plants are powered by gas recovered from landfills, which accounted for around 63.3% of global biogas power generation.
