Founded in February 2009, the European BioGAS Association is one of the youngest European associations in the field of renewable energies. It has been steadily growing, covering in 2013 almost the whole continent with more than 60 members. IrBEA joined EBA in 2012 to broaden our international networking capabilities in this area.
Biogas is a versatile energy source and the EBA believes that the fuel has the potential to contribute at least 1.5% of the EU’s primary energy mix and 5% of the EU’s natural gas consumption (in energy equivalent terms) by 2020.
The EBA believes that by 2030 the overall potential for biogas is at least 50 billion m3. Thus, by 2030 and with the right policies in place, the industry could deliver 2-4% of the EU’s electricity needs and take a 15-30% share of the methane market.
