Jakob Bauer is a farmer and operator of the Bartlmühle biogas plant in Pleystein, Bavaria. It is connected to an agenitor 406 which is used to generate around 4 million kW hours of electricity from biogas each year. The heat produced while generating electricity is fed to the fermenter to support the fermentation process and is used in his own and the neighboring company through a local heat network. The electricity is fed into the public grid. “I am convinced that 2G is three to four years ahead of other engine manufacturers when it comes to research and development,” explains Jakob Bauer. “I am particularly pleased by the fact that 2G is really concerned by what we need outside.” Bauer will decide in the next few weeks whether to add another avus 500 in order to achieve more flexibility. He believes that biogas plants only have a justified existence in accordance with EEG if they can produce energy on demand and do exactly that. 2G also feels well taken care of with this decision.
