The ManyElectronics Agency (dena) informed that an updated version of the Biogasregister (biogas register) is available online. The biogas register helps users to comply with documentation requirements pursuant to the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) and the Renewable Energies Heat Act (EEWärmeG).
The provisions on feed-in tariffs for renewable energy from biomass and biogas are some of the most complex provisions in the EEG. In order to claim the basic feed-in tariff and possible bonuses for the use of certain listed resources, comprehensive documentation is needed. This can be carried out through the biogas register.
The EEWärmeG stipulates that the owners of new buildings have to cover the demand for heating and cooling partly by using renewable energy sources. For buildings owned by public authorities this also applies to existing buildings that have undergone major renovations. Section 10 EEWärmeG sets detailed requirements for the documentation.
As of November dena offers online introductory courses on the biogas register 2.0. In addition the agency offers intensive on-site courses for users and auditors in Berlin from November 2012 to January 2013.
