Integration of Biogas Systems into the Energy System: Technical Aspects of Flexible Plant Operation

Short Introductive summary

With increasing shares of intermittent variable renewable electricity (such as solar and wind power) in the future energy system, the overall design and operation of biogas facilities for energy provision may change significantly. Biogas is a versatile energy carrier which can be used to produce electricity, heat and after upgrading serve all functions of natural gas, including transport. The presentation entitled “Integration of Biogas Systems into the Energy System - Technical Aspects of Flexible Plant Operation” will address the flexibility of biogas systems. Biogas systems are not only dispatchable but can produce electricity to match an electricity demand profile, while facilitating voltage and grid stability. The report addresses the complexity of these systems in terms of technical requirements and plant operation to match variation in energy output. As a decentralised component of the overall energy system biogas systems can play an essential role (together with solar and wind power) as part of a virtual power plant in local distribution energy grids. The presentation highlights the innovation and ingenuity that will be required of biogas operators in future energy systems. Content of the presentation is based on a technical report published by IEA Bioenergy Task 37 - Energy from Biogas.
