An exhaustive analysis of fixed-price models is given by Mendoc¸a et al. (2010). One of the first countries to introduce the fixed-price model was Germany. Here, the Renewable Energies Act (EEG) went into effect in the year 2000. It proved to be the starting point for growth in all renewable energy sectors and the number of biogas plants increased considerably.

The operators of biogas plants must therefore be trained thoroughly. Another German experience is that fewer accidents happen during normal operation than happen during construction, start-up or maintenance of a biogas plant. Again, personnel doing the work must be trained and made aware of the risks involved. © Woodhead Publishing Limited, 2013 12 The biogas handbook In addition to the hazards that can occur in connection with the mechanical operation of biogas plants or the uncontrolled escape of biogas, the risk that pathogenic germs may spread with the digestion residue in fields is a topic often discussed by the general public.

One attempt at integrating the external cost of energy provision in the prices is the trade in ‘pollution rights’ in the form of CO2 certificates. This tool has not been working well on a global scale because there is no political will of helping a genuine market into being at the international level. If the provision and utilization of renewable energy is a target of energy policy, the required mechanisms that cause potential actors to supply renewable energies must be adopted. In other words, demand for energy that is more expensive but ‘cleaner’ than energy from conventional sources must be generated.
