The German biogas register is a platform for the standardised and straightforward documentation of records on biogas quantities and quality in the natural gas grid.
It was conceived for producers, distributors, and consumers of processed biogas injected into the natural gas grid — called biomethane or bio natural gas.
The German biogas register documents records for the use of biogas, in particular for:
- Electricity and heat production (EEG)
- Heat production (EEWärmeG)
As a neutral stakeholder, the Deutsche Energie-Agentur GmbH (dena) – the German Energy Agency – operates the biogas register and provides a system which allows biomethane to be certified and traced from production to consumption.
