Evolution of biogas production in Europe

Definition

This indicator shows the progression of biogas production in Europe since 2007.


Analysis

In spite of a slight decrease in production in 2011, the development of biogas production is difficult to assess because Germany has changed its method of calculation. The production has increased sharply between 2011 and 2012. However, the increase was fed by a rush to install before German and Italian governments announced cut in feed-in tariffs came into force in 2012. Thus, production is expected to grow at a lower rate in 2013 but the “other” countries such as Czech Republic (+50% between 2011 and 2012) or Poland (+22% between 2011 and 2012) shoud have an increasingly important place
