With the Renewable Energy Sources Act , effective from 1 January 2012, smaller
biogas plants for agricultural livestock farms are becoming financially attractive.
There are stronger financial incentives especially
for slurry-based plants in the performanceclass
up to 75 kW .
Owners of these biogas plants will receive a
special allowance of 25 cent per kWh!
• The power generation is where biogas is produced
• The minimum share of slurry and/or manure is 80% (pigs, cattle, poultry)
With a cattle farm of about 135 cattle or 2061 pigs, you benefit most from the new EEG 2012.
You have a constant supply of slurry, which is collected centrally
You have some acres of developable land to grow energy crops
You have good relationships with your neighbouring farmers or local residents
The municipality is considering or already has plans to extend its energy network
At the moment, there are only some, if any, biogas plants that are competing for
existing energy consumers
The new EEG will bring change to the landscape and the operation of biogas plants in
Germany. The trend towards larger biogas plants will be shifting tosmaller on-farm
facilites in the year 2012.
It almost seemslike the new EEG was written exclusively
for bue Anlagentechnik GmbH. The EEG gives impetus to
a research and developmentthat we have been following
for several years and that fits very well with our ideas.
With our know-how, we are able to exceed
all requirements of the new EEG 2012.
