Is biogas the best choice in the face of supply shortages?

In the past few months we have seen how electricity and gas prices in Europe have risen to unprecedented levels. The war in Ukraine is undoubtedly the main reason for this growth.

The magnitude of this problem is immense and undoubtedly reveals Europe’s enormous dependence on natural gas imported from Russia. Faced with this situation, the countries of the European Union have been forced to compensate for this loss by saving energy and importing alternative sources. But what do we mean when we talk about alternative sources, and is it feasible to curb this dependence through them?

In a society in which fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal predominate, the search for and use of other, more sustainable energy sources is currently an essential strategy for dealing with this situation. Solar energy, wind energy and biomass energy are three of the best known renewable energies. However, other alternatives are also emerging, such as biogas.

This renewable gas is seeking to carve out a niche for itself by highlighting its contribution to the circular economy. Although the supply capacity of this source is limited in the short term, its contribution to ending dependence on Russian gas is vital.

The importance of this resource is so great that this Monday, September 12, the deadline for submitting applications for the first call for aid for singular projects for biogas facilities in Spain has opened within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan financed by the European Union. The initial amount of this call is 150 million euros.
