Nearly a third more of biogas energy is being produced in the UK compared to a year ago, according to new figures from industry trade body ADBA. The AD Market Report, published at UK AD and Biogas 2016, shows that the UK now has 617MW of biogas capacity. This amount is enough to power 800,000 homes. However, although more biogas energy is being produced growth in the industry has slowed. Also it will slow even more over the next four years due to government policy decision and investment uncertainty. Recent government decisions have led to a reduction in the anaereobic digestion (AD) energy generation capacity that ABDA expects to be installed by winter 2018 by 250MW (megawatts).
