Due to climate change policy decisions, a profound structural change and transformation with the objective of the integration of increasing shares of renewable energy into the power supply system will arise. Storable biogas is currently the only energy option that is able to provide demand-based renewable electricity. The market-based optimisation model shows the surplus revenue from direct marketing in contrast to the EEG feed-in tariff. Further increases of the contribution margin can be achieved with the concept of the flexibility premium.
