Political targets for biogas and biomethane production

According to Directive 2009/28/EC, Austria’s target share of renewable energy in gross final consumption of energy is 34 % by 2020. In the 2005 base year this share was 24.4 % and for 2008 already a total of 29.0 % had been reached. The Austrian NREAP does not set a specific target for the utilisation of biomethane in the year 2020.
