      Biogas Injection Into the Gas Supply Network in the Federal
      Republic of Germany
      Dr. Gerrit Volk*
      I. Introduction
      Biogas is produced primarily through the fermentation
      of biogenic substrates. The substrates used in
      this process comemainly fromenergy plants such as
      maize, as well as from slurry and bio waste. The biogas
      produced consists of a maximum of 60 %
      methane. So that the gas is

      This issue brings together five very interesting articles and a country report. Rafael Leal-
      Arcas and Andrew Filis, authors of the first article, analyze the legal aspects of the promotion
      of renewable energy within the European Union (EU) and in relation to the
      EU’s obligation in the World Trade Organization (WTO). Both energy and the EU, albeit
      for different reasons inherent to them, are complex affairs. EU renewable energy

    • Abstract: The present article researches the mechanisms suggested for controlling the fulfillment of
      the EU sustainability criteria for transport biofuels that have been presented in the central
      legal framework in this area, which is Directive 2009/28/EC. The analysis is extended to the
      related EU policy documents of a non-binding explanatory and recommendatory character.
      Judging from the content of Directive 2009/28/EC, two main levels of the EU control can be

      needs to be addressed. Energy storage has the potential to help address this problemby storing
      commercially useful amounts of energy to be discharged as electricity when required.
      However, energy storage does not have a universally accepted legal definition because it is

      How to support renewables is a subject of constant discussion at European level. The first
      initiatives to promote renewables at the European level goes back to the 1990s. In 2001, the

  • Legal Limits for Electricity Capacity Markets in the EU and Germany
    • Abstract: The article examines the major legal questions which arise from the introduction of electricity
      capacity markets in the EU and especially Germany. As central capacity markets generally
      might qualify as state aid under EU law, the conditions for services of general economic
      interest could become crucial when it comes to the design of such markets. The relevant
      criteria have been laid down by the European Commission in a 2003 decision on the Irish capacity

    • Abstract: When deploying certain generation technologies in particular settings, renewables appear
      already to have achieved grid parity. Confirmation of this comes from Texas, of
      all places. Austin Energy, the municipal electric utility for the City of Austin, signed a
      25-year power purchase agreement for 150MWof solar power at less than $0.05/kWh.
      Of PPAs in the US for renewable energy, this is the lowest cost per kilowatt hour ever
      achieved. Analysts have assessed the SunEdison

      is a central pillar of United Kingdom plans for a largely decarbonised economy by mid-century;
      in order to reach ambitious climate change targets and budgets, and a related renewables
      target, step changes are needed in levels of investment in offshore generating stations,

      Several Member States of the European Union have taken measures to promote the injection

      of network access and by pipeline capacity constraints. The article proposes new arrangements

      as the ethanol leader at odds and in direct competition with the US domestic ethanol
      industry. It is this battle for ethanol supremacy which assists in an understanding of the
      political climate, international regulation and resulting domestic legislation since the partnership
      between the US and Brazil in 2007. Currently, no government or international organisation

      I. Introduction
      Africa has 147 GW in total installed electricity
      capacity, though it lacks a proper continental capacity
      in terms of energy generation.1 To put this figure
      into perspective, Africa’s total capacity is what
      China alone can install in one or two years. The per
      capita electricity consumption in Africa, excluding
      South Africa, is 153 kWh/year. About 600 million
      Africans have no access to electricity, and the continent
