Europe's current dependencies on imports of natural gas (and the willingness to delivery from its supplier states) has proven to be at valuable risk during recent months. When considering the projections of our growing energy demand during the next decades in relation to Europe's natural oil and gas resources it becomes clear that these dependencies will have tremendous pricing effects on our economies in the near future.
Using our natural and renewable resources in a sustainable and accountable manner is a vital and important duty on behalf of the next generations to come. Especially the field of biogas utilization holds huge optimization - and future development potential on both, the economical and sustainable side. The importance to develop/explore these potentials in addition with using our own resources carefully has to be the prime target during the years to come.
The following problems will be addressed within the SEBE project (the same as in the following section):
A huge amount of diversified biogas environments are already existing within national/regional/local boundaries which have been implemented in the best possible manner (both in terms of resources and capacities) throughout the CENTRAL program area. However, when it comes to transnational or cross-border cooperation in terms of investments and biogas plants and equipment the involved parties quickly realize that different countries have different systems which makes the overall business success of such projects (and the time invested to overcome these hurdles) sometimes quickly questionable.
