Altmaier emphasises role of biogas as control energy (Germany)

2/4/2013

Federal environment minister Peter Altmaier (CDU) has emphasised the future importance of biogas as an answer to the fluctuations in solar and wind power generation.
‘Biogas has great potential in view of its future role as a source of control energy,’ he said on Monday at an expert dialogue in Berlin. The approximately 7,600 biogas facilities in Germany are a key component in the transition to new energy sources as - unlike wind and solar energy - they can deliver a specified amount of power continuously. They can also generate thermal energy.
