Total so-called shunt products with a share of five-to-20 percent biogas are about one-third of the eco gas tariffs. And nearly half of the eco gas offers are air fares, that is, not based on renewable raw materials, they compensate for the expelled CO2 through projects such as the protection of the rainforest. A real energy revolution in the gas market is different”, says Florian Henle, co-founder of Polaris. Therefore, he has developed a new eco gas product together with its two co-founders. Electric may find it difficult to be quoted properly. It is 100 percent based on residues and is often cheaper or similar priced; compared to the fossil basic catering rate compared to other 100% eco gas rates to more than 40 percent it is cheaper.
Makes possible a new trading scheme it how it is already established in the electricity market. Developed it has supported Polarstern, of the Federal Ministry of for Economics and technology and the European Social Fund. Specifically, it works as follows: the bio-gas is purchased from European plants and placed directly in local networks, for example by local companies. It replaced the previously used natural gas there greatest extent. By biogas in local networks and not distribution or transport networks is fed, it is particularly effective in the displacement of fossil natural gas. This maximizes the contribution to climate protection, promotes renewable energy and reduced dependence on natural gas imports. As in the entire energy sector, get recognized end customers in Germany the produced biogas. In other words, Polaris warrants to its customers that in the height of their gas consumption biogas from waste produced and has displaced natural gas.
The biogas production and quantitative compliance of bio-gas produced and sold are regularly certified by TuV Nord. Basically, we have a real sister product to the eco-electricity developed,”says Florian Henle. If it now still so successful, such as the eco-electricity in Germany, we are a huge step closer turn of the energy in the heating market.” Sources: * the green economy founding monitor by the Berlin Board er step was Institute for innovation and sustainability and Oldenburg University with support from the Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) and the national climate protection initiative.
