1 Biogas as vehicle fuel - Policy case West Sweden Mats Johansson On behalf of Hanna Jönsson Processledare Biogas Väst

2 The presentation The situation in Sweden The situation in Västra Götaland How did it happen? What s next

3 The situation today in Sweden Deliveries of vehicle gas fuel increased with 35% between 2009 and Skåne, Västra Götaland and Stockholm's Counties stands for ca 70 % Other counties has increases on more than 200 % The share of biogas in the vehicle gas is in average more than 60%. Total supplies of 59,3 million Nm3 biogas. More than gas vehicles

4 Gas-stations In Sweden 131 public stations 1 station for liquid gas 40 bus garages and non-public stations picture: FordonsGas

5 No of cars Gas driven cars in Sweden Picture: FordonsGas

6 Total use of gas within the transport sector MNm Biogas Natural gas Källa: SCB

7 Biogas in Västra Götaland Manure, sewage sludge, sorted garbage. Used for vehicles, heating and electricity. Reduces nutrient leak, eutrophication, methane gas leaks Creates jobs Fuel produced within the country

8 The situation in Västra Götaland 80 % of all inhabitants has a filling station in their municipality 25% of Swedens biogas vehicles 25% of Swedens biogas sales 35% of all filling stations Compared to 1/6 or 17% of the population are in Västra Götaland

9 Biogas development i Västra Götaland Gas vehicles Källa: Projektet Biogas Väst Gas stations Sold biogas (GWh)

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

11 Green gas principle Upgraded biogas Natural gas Digested residues/b iofertilezer electricity and heat Vehicle fuel Through the green gas principle biogas can be supplied at all filling stations Communication to end users are extremely vital! Bild: FordonsGas

12 Distribution systems Biogasproduction Biogasproduction Biogasproduction Cooling Termos Termos Filling station Bottles Filling station Natural gas grid Filling station Trailer Bottles Filling station Bottles Trailer Bottles Filling station Filling station Bild: FordonsGas

13 How did this happen? Balance between private companies - Governmental Organisations Long term commitment Creating trust is a slow process! Process - project

14 Development A project A process

15 Governmental organisations can Guarantee stability and perseverance Democratic perspective Build infrastructure Keep the engine running Make sure everyone is involved Communicate, externally and internally Create good conditions

16 Important tools Build infrastructure Production sites Filling stations Procurement Technology driven Joint procurement Transport analysis What are the real needs Sustainable planning

17 Self owned vehicles Own cars Waste trucks, buses Facilitate gas vehicles Free parking Drive in bus lanes Car pools Investment support Information Stick to your vision! Important tools

18 Common mistakes Too fast Wrong focus technology instead of process Lack of communication Lack of a common view of the project Unrealistic expectations Listening mode turned off

19 Whats next? 25 times more biogas in 2020! The politicians of the Västra Götaland region want to increase production of biogas used within the transport sector by 25 times, from 0,1 TWh/yr to 2,4 TWh/yr

20 Policy and support programme for biogas in Västra Götaland Environmental board has launched a programme and joint initiative for the biogas development Totally 2,6million 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 The programme/joint initiative still has the name Biogas Väst (west)

21 What does the regional administration of Västra Götaland do? Redan 2004 beslutade Västra Götalandsregionen att köpa in enbart miljöbilar beslutade regionstyrelsen att biogasen är prioriterad som bränsle för verksamheternas bilar. I dec 2010 antog miljönämnden ett treårigt program för biogasutveckling i regionen och satte upp planeringsmål för 2020

22 Objectives Planeringsmål: 2020 ska produktionen av biogas i Västra Götaland vara 2,4 TWh/år 2020 ska användningen av biogas i Västra Götaland vara 2,4 TWh/år Av detta ska 1,2 TWh produceras genom rötning och 1,2 TWh genom förgasning Delmål för : Producerad respektive använd biogas ska uppgå till 0,3 TWh (idag 0,1 TWh) Nya produkter och demonstrationsprojekt på plats Fler delmål under respektive delområde

23 Programme areas 1. Cooperation for biogas development 2. Promoting more enhanced national objectives and increased national support 3. Dissemination of knowledge and information about biogas developmen in entire West Sweden (Västra Götaland) 4. More actors using procurement as tool 5. Public transport fuelled with biogas 6. Supporting domestic market for development of exportmarkets 7. Develop the regional infrastructure for biogas 8. Support applied research 9. Increased cooperation with other regions

24 Organisation Process support Financing the platform Advisory to process manager regular meetings Environmental Borad Leads the programme Coordinates important actions Allocates resources Process management and coordination Programme Council Competence and resources Suggests and participatesin actions Open for all Platform for cooperation, communication and the joint initiative Arbetsgrupper Working Öppnas/stängs Arbetsgrupper groups efter behov Opens/closes Öppnas/stängs Sammansättning besed efter on need utifrån behov Staffed Sammansättning intressen based on och interests kompetens utifrån intressen and competence och kompetens
