1 The regional project Biogas Väst Experiences from the first regional biogas cluster project in the world European Biomethane Fuel Conference Göteborg 7-9 September Bernt Svensén Biogas Väst Business Region Göteborg

2 The presentation includes Business Region Göteborg & the County of Västra Götaland The structure of the biogas fuel business The Biogas Väst project Results of Biogas Väst Biogas Väst future & developing areas

3 Business Region Göteborg Public-owned regional, non-profit and neutral company Sustainable growth Diversity trade and industry High level of employment Business & cluster development Investment & establishing A good business climate

4 Business Region Göteborg Is the head and project manager of Biogas Väst Winner of the American environmental prize Blue Sky Award for creating Biogas Väst, the first regional biogas project in Sweden. BRG has inspired the many foreign visitors to Sweden to take advantage of Swedish expertise in developing biogas for vehicles in their own countries, says John Boesel, CEO of Calstart

5 Göteborg & The County of Västra Götaland The third largest region in Sweden and consists of 49 municipalities of which Göteborg is the biggest. Scandinavian transport and logistics centre with Scandinavia's biggest port in Göteborg. Västra Götaland has varying environments, rich cultural heritage and diversity and unique natural values and a strong environmental awareness. There are also several centres for applied research and development. Co-operation with trade and industry has a strong tradition. The region Number of inhabitants Västra Götaland Size (in km²) 24,000 Mayor city Göteborg

6 The structure of the biogas fuel business

7 Biogas fuel Interaction between different industries Energy & Gas Waste Biogas fuel Agriculture & Forest Transport Shipping Automotive

8 Why do we need a co-operation project? Use in transport Filling stations Car manufacturers Biogas production Waste Substrate We need partners from different industries in the biogas chain!

9 The thinking behind the project Act locally think globally Acceptance Local and regional authorities National authorities Identify the stakeholders Substrate & Waste Biogas production Gasdistribution Fueling stations Transports & Vehicles Agree about common goals

10 The Biogas Väst project

11 The establishment of Biogas Väst Borås, Göteborg, Trollhättan AB Volvo, FordonsGas väst, Volvo PV The project starts in March 2001 Project manager: Business Region Göteborg

12 The Biogas Väst co-operation project in Westsweden Market development Production Distribution Vehicles Purpose: To develop a new industry that brings down the climate gases

13 Biogas chain partners in Biogas West Increased sales of biogas & vehicles Fueling stations Car Manufacturer Retailers Biogas production Raw material Substrate Supported by: EU-project Swedish EPA

14 Vision for Biogas Väst 2020 Biomethane can replace 20 % of fossil fuel in transport sector Target fuelling stations gas-powered vehicles Biogas & CNG replace 20 milj. litres petrol/diesel

15 Together formulate a vision Vision gas filling stations gas-powered vehicles 1500 GWh biogas Clear vision Vision 2020 The region is a important link in the national infrastructure Leading region in an European co-operation Measurably contribution to lower GHG and health risks trough an European co-operation A commercial biogas market with profits for the involved actors The political ambitions and visions of the regionen is visible Market development is of interest for the industry

16 Together formulate the target Target stationer gas-powered vehicles 100 GWh biogas (+100 GWh n-gas) Clear measurable target Target 2009 Leading region in a national co-operation Lower emissions of GHG and harmful compounds, shall contribute to the goal of the region A commercial market development has started Contributes to the regional environmental target Market development contributes to more employees and companies

17 Why a regional project (and not a local)? The market volume must grow Cars, regional buses, h. duty trucks The local markets must together built a regional and national market Gradual extension of the infrastructure Local regional national international

18 Cooperation model: Public-Private Partnership Fixed project Fixed planning Fixed period Contract Legal agreement Infrastructure Consortium Investment in the project Alternative choice Cooperation PPP Development project Flexibel planning Flexibel period Confidential agreement Common goal Network Investment outside the project Dependency

19 The results of Biogas Väst

20 Project activities Exchange of experiences Network & cluster Business devlopment International cooperation t Communication & information Market activities Website, newsletter, brochures Conferences & seminars Coordination Investment finance program Feasibility studies
