Modelling Adaptation of Biogas Plants to Demand-Oriented Electricity Production

M. Brulé, R. Bolduan, R. Mougel, T. Demeusy & P. Schlagermann
In the frame of a study for EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG and Erdgas Südwest GmbH a model agricultural biogas plant was adapted to enable the switch from permanent production (standard scenario) towards demand-driven electricity production (following the diurnal profile of electricity demand of a household). Subsequently, both feasibility and additional costs for demand-driven production were examined. The model biogas plant was modified to match the requirements for flexible electricity production: gas storage capacity was increased...
