Biogas in European overview
State of the art in Italy
Currently in Italy there are 1.555 biogas plants with a total installed capacity of 1.169,6 MWel and an average plant capacity of 752 kW for each plant and only 5 biomethane plants (elaborations of CIB, based on 2015 GSE data)
State of the art in Europe
The spread of this technology on the European market reached a total of 17.240 biogas plants and 367 biomethane plants at the end of 2014 (EBA Report 2015).

This project is about promoting, supporting and developing biogas owned by the community in Europe, in order to take full advantage of its ample societal benefits. The biogas should be seen as a public good and not a commodity.
The project aims to promote the production of sustainable biogas throughout the EU, especially by exchanging best practices, creating new business models and increasing investments in biogas production.
Bioenergy Villages (BioVill) – Increasing the Market Uptake of Sustainable Bioenergy. Cofinanced by Horizon 2020, the overall objective of BioVill is to develop regional bioenergy concepts in several countries up to the investment stage in order to create “bioenergy villages”.
BiomethER LIFE + promotes the chain of biomethane through two demonstration plants: upgrading of biogas from landfill with direct feeding of biomethane into the national gas grid and biogas from sewage sludge for automotive use.
The objective of BIOSURF is to increase the production and use of biomethane for gas grid injection and as transport, by removing non-technical barriers and by paving the way towards a European biomethane market.
The objective of BioEnergy Farm II is to promote the market for micro-scale digestion in Europe; it is the continuous of BioEnergy Farm
