AD MARKET UPDATE JULY 2014

AD market

The AD market has grown rapidly since 2010, reaching the
current 154 MW electrical equivalent capacity (between
electricity and biomethane) from 145 plants
1
. The increase
in capacity each year since 2010 has been in the range 26-
32 MWe-equivalent (across 20-30 new plants each year).
2014 should be a big year, with capacity increasing by a
larger amount than this due to uptake of biomethane (see
biomethane section below), as well as significant growth in
the number of electricity plants

.

Biomethane to grid

In addition to the 4 already
commissioned (3 under the RHI),
we are aware of a further 37 in the
pipeline, which could deliver 10-15
plants to the RHI this year and a
further 15 next year. These include
food waste, agricultural, sewage
and industrial effluent treatment
plants.
