1 Introduction to Västra Götaland s biogas programme Hanna Jönsson Biogas Manager, Region Västra Götaland

2 Outline Climate strategy for Västra Götaland The situation for biogas in Sweden The biogas programme of Västra Götaland

3 Climate Strategy for Västra Götaland No longer dependent on fossil energy in Västra Götaland in 2030 Strenghten competiveness and create more jobs Long-term collaboration between public and private actors Common agreements for action that leads to result

4 Biogas one part of the solution OBJECTIVE: 25 times more biogas in 2020! The production and use of biogas in Västra Götaland to increase from 0,1 TWh/yr to 2,4 TWh/yr

5 The chain of biogas development Heat Electricity Substrates Collection Transport Biogas plant Distribution Upgrading Filling stations End users Vehicles Digester residue Bio-manure Distribution

6 Why biogas? Sustainable waste treatment Renewable energy and vehicle fuel to reduce emissions of CO2. Reduces nutrient leak, eutrophication, methane gas leaks Creates jobs Fuel produced within the country

7 The situation in Sweden Production anaerob digestion Large scale plants Mostly sewage sludge, kitchen waste from households and restaurants, manure, slaughterhouse waste and other food waste. Some agricultural crops. About 240 biogas plants in operation Municipal waste water treatment plants 50% of the biogas production today Small scale, farmer-sized plants Large potential About plants in operation. Five of them in Västra Götaland. 30% investment support from rural development programme Totally 1,4 TWh biogas/yr are produced in Sweden

8 The situation in Sweden The most environmentally-friendly vehicle fuel on the market today In Sweden more that 35% of the biogas is used as vehicle fuel Gaseous or liquid fuel More than gas vehicles About 170 filling stations for vehicle gas 60 % of the vehicle gas sold in Sweden is biogas Biogas can also be used for Generation of electricity Production of heat Raw material for manufacturing industry

9 The situation in Sweden Total use of gas within the transport sector MNm 3 Source: SCB

10 Distribution different ways 1. Local biogas grids 3. Injection into existing gas grid 2. Trailer (high pressure) 4. Termotrailer (liquid) Example Biogas Brålanda

11 Gas-stations in Sweden public stations 1 station for liquid gas 40 bus garages and non-public stations Picture: FordonsGas Sverige AB

12 Picture: FordonsGas Sverige AB

13 Biogas development in Västra Götaland Source: Biogas West Gas vehicles Gas stations Sold biogas (GWh)

14 The biogas programme of Västra Götaland Environmental board has launched a programme and joint initiative for the biogas development Objective: The production and use of biogas in Västra Götaland to increase by 25 times from 0,1 TWh/yr 2009 to 2,4 TWh/yr 2020 Totally 2,5 million allocated to lead, coordinate and support prioritised measures All actors connected to the regional network contributes to the work and will act within their companies and organisations to reach the objectives

15 Programme areas 1. Increased collaboration for biogas development 2. Promoting more enhanced national objectives and increased national support 3. Dissemination of knowledge and information about biogas developmen throughout West Sweden (Västra Götaland) 4. More actors using procurement as tool 5. Public transport fuelled with biogas 6. Supporting a domestic market for development of export markets 7. Develop the regional infrastructure for biogas 8. Promote applied research and competence provision 9. Increase cooperation with other regions

16 How? Arrange meetings broader network and new collaborations Facilitate exchange of knowledge and good practice Coordinate several working groups Finance pre-studies, projects and information activities Identify institutional barriers and how to overcome them and more

17 The chain of biogas development Producers of raw material Producers of biogas Those who upgrade biogas to vehicle fuel Those who supply the filling stations Those who manufacture the gas cars Researchers & scientists End-users Collaboration!
