Between 2016 and 2025, the Number of Biogas Plants Will Grow from Circa 12,000 to 15,000

The worldwide construction of new biogas plants will continue in the next 10 years. Between 2016 and 2025, the installed capacity will increase from around 7,000 MWel to 9,600 MWel, while the number of biogas plants will grow from circa 12,000 to 15,000.

Subsidies for electricity, heat or fuel produced in biogas facilities will remain the main driver for this development. However, as many (especially European) countries cut their support schemes, this development will not be as dynamic as in the early 2010s. These reductions show the most severe impacts in the formerly dominating German market.

Many market players are thus exploring new ways for doing business. Apart from tapping new international sales markets, many technology providers are currently developing their service business related to optimising existing plants (repowering).

Against this backdrop, we have once again analysed, together with local partners, the global market for biogas plants. This is the fourth edition of our study.

The Analyst version of the market study “Biogas to Energy” includes:

  • A detailed analysis of the essential political, economic, managerial and technological trends for constructing and operating biogas plants
  • A concrete description of the current and future market volumes by countries, up to and including 2025, based on a transparent and comprehensible methodology
  • A presentation and analysis of the most important biogas plant operators and manufacturers
