January 7 (Renewables Now) - The amount of biogas injected into Denmark’s gas system reached a new record share of almost 25% at the end of 2021, up from around 21% at the end of 2020, Danish electricity and gas grid operator Energinet said on Friday.

A total of 51 biogas facilities have been connected to the gas network since 2013, one linked directly to the transmission system and the rest to the distribution system across the country.

Biogas is expected to cover 75% of Denmark’s gas consumption in 2030 and to fully meet gas demand on an annual basis in 2034.

When injected into the gas system, biogas can be used for heating, combined heat and power (CHP) generation, production activities in companies, as well as for vehicles that run on gas, explains Energinet.

In addition to reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, biogas contributes to the security of supply, it is noted in the announcement.
