Potential Benefits: Biomethane-imports from Ukraine
Biomethane is an important element on the path to climate neutrality — thus the demand is great in Germany. This paper describes the potential that lies in the German-Ukrainian biomethane cooperation — and how existing hurdles can be overcome.
In both Ukraine and Germany, biomethane plays an important role in the efforts to achieve climate neutrality by the middle of the century.
Ukraine plans to bring biomethane plants with an annual production volume of at least eleven TWh into operation by 2030. The export of biomethane is a promising business model for Ukraine. The country has set itself the goal of supplying the EU with climate-friendly electricity and gases, including biomethane, in the long term.
Demand is high in the EU and especially in Germany. The German market is estimated to have a biomethane demand potential of up to 102 TWh in 2030 and up to 331 TWh in 2050.
However, both in Ukraine and in Germany, there are currently still hurdles on the way to a successful and sustainable German-Ukrainian biomethane cooperation. These range from investment risks in Ukraine to regulatory issues in Germany.
The LibMod Policy Paper “Potential Benefits: Structuring German-Ukrainian Cooperation in the Biomethane Sector” by Ann-Kristin Golz (Senior Manager Public Affairs, Zukunft Gas), Oleksii Romanov (Director, IMEPOWER) and Ruslan Delidon (Director, Pro-Energy LLC) describes:
- The potential for biomethane demand and fields of use in Germany
- Ukraine’s export potential
- Regulatory hurdles in Germany and Ukraine and their specific solutions
- And investment requirements and financing mechanisms
The authors encourage stakeholders in Ukraine and Germany to seek discussions, explore opportunities for cooperation and initiate trade-relations.
