Of all the renewable energy sources in Schleswig-Holstein, biogas plants make the greatest contribution to heat supply. All in all, 14 per cent of the heating requirement is supplied by renewable energy, and almost completely from biomass plants that supply local heating networks. By 2025 the share of heat from renewable sources in Schleswig-Holstein should increase to 22 per cent. Most of this heating will be generated from biomass plants. The total installed capacity of biogas plants in Schleswig-Holstein is currently 400 megawatts, and this amount is to be maintained in the long-term.
Biogas and other biomass plants can to a limited extent also serve as short-term storage for wind and solar energy. A sustainable energy policy objective is thus to achieve greater networking of the biomass plants with other renewable energy generators, and this is therefore also the aim of EE.SH.
The EE.SH network agency supports the collaboration between the biomass industry and other renewable energy industries. The project team organises cross-sector events and establishes contacts with business partners, public authorities and funding institutions. You can find out more about our Serviceshere.
