Connecting a biogas facility to the gas network

Biogas is a renewable source of energy. When the gas is combusted, the amount of carbon dioxide that is released is equal to the amount that was previously taken up from the atmosphere. Biogas can be produced in many different ways, including anaerobic digestion, landfill and gasification facilities, and Power to Gas.

Swedegas is working actively to increase the proportion of biogas in the gas network, and it would like to see more biogas producers connecting to the national grid to feed in biogas where it is technically possible and economically feasible. 

Commencing in 2018, we quarterly report statistics on how much biogas is being transported and used in the network. These are reported as aggregate figures, both for the grid, and for the entire network in western Sweden, in the Gas Barometer.
