Management of the register by dena
The Deutsche Energie-Agentur GmbH (dena) – the German Energy Agency – is the competency centre for energy efficiency, renewable energy sources, and intelligent energy systems. dena's goal is for energy to be generated and used as efficiently, safely, cost-effectively, climate-neutral as possible, both domestically and internationally. To achieve this goal, it collaborates with players from the fields of politics, the economy, and society.
dena operates the German biogas register as the registrar. The registrar's duties include:
- Providing users of the system with support (Support)
- Quality assurance as part of record-keeping (Quality and security)
- Admission of new users (Initial registration)
- Providing the technical system (Login).
Due to its status as a semi-governmental organisation , dena is independent of players in the biomethane industry. Hence, it acts as a neutral registrar .
