“The Schedule 2 amendments will address the constraints related to licensing potentially hundreds of thousands of rooftop PV systems, biogas and other small-scale embedded generators smaller than 1 MW, and unlock investment in that space,” Radebe told delegates.
These are strict anaerobic bacteria and mainly occur in muddy areas and also in stomach of cattle, where cellulose is fermented by microbes. These are responsible for methane gas (CH4 ) formation in bio-gas plants, because they have capacity to produce CH4 from CO2 or formic acid (HCOOH).
The widespread adoption of biogas as a reliable alternative energy source seems like a nobrainer. Capturing energy rich methane produced from decaying materials is a proven technology yet its adoption as part of the renewable energy mix appears to have been overshadowed by wind and solar.
