Status of Flexibilization Concepts for Biogas Plants to Cover Residual Load Rises
Fluctuations in wind and solar energy due to climate as well as the rising demand of renewable energy puts on and on a stronger focus on alternative systems like demand-driven biogas production. Hence, currently examined concepts for flexibilization of biogas plants are described. The biogas storage as well as the demand-driven biogas production by feeding management, variable conversion into electricity, disintegration processes or packed-bed fermentation belong to these concepts. Furthermore, the combination with power-to-gas or power-to-heat systems seems promising.
