Slovenia is one of six target countries in the BiG>East project. The objective is to promote biogas as renewable energy source and as waste treatment technology. This is achieved by the implementation of training courses for farmers and mobilisation campaigns for decision makers. Dedicated studies on biogas opportunities, policies and barriers in Slovenia support this initiative.

Biogas Opportunities in Slovenia


The BiG>East Consortium is investigating the opportunities for biogas implementation in Slovenia. This includes an assessment of the biogas potential in Slovenia. The following studies were elaborated in the framework of the BiG>East project:


- Assessment of existing biogas installations in Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Latvia, Romania, and Slovenia


- Technical review of the utilisation of waste material for biogas production in Eastern Europe and Slovenia


- Estimation of the potential feedstock availability for biogas production in Eastern Europe and Slovenia


- Assessment of the agricultural structure for biogas production in Eastern Europe and Slovenia


- Biogas purification and feed-in opportunities in Europe and Slovenia


- Technical opportunities for the utilisation of biogas in Eastern Europe and Slovenia


- Impact of biogas production in Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Latvia, Romania and Slovenia


- Biogas Potential in Romania: Summary Croatia


- Biogas Site Selection Guideline


- Assessment Studies for Specific Biogas Sites in the target region of Slovenia

- Biogas Show Case in the target Region of Slovenia




Policies and Barriers for Biogas in Slovenia


Policies are important in order to create a favourable framework for biogas production and use in Slovenia. On the other side, there are Barriers which hinder the application of biogas technologies. BiG>East investigated policies and barriers in Slovenia:


- Biogas Policies in Slovenia


- Biogas Barriers in Slovenia


- Biogas Roadmap for Slovenia



Biogas Training in Slovenia


In the framework of the BiG>East project three training courses for farmers are implemented in Slovenia. The training courses are currently under preparation and more information will be available soon.


Training material as well as a biogas handbook including an economic calculation tool was elaborated and can be downloaded here:


- Biogas Training Handbook


- Excel Calculation Tool for Economic Analysis of Biogas Plants


- Questionnaire for the Evaluation of Biogas Training


- Summary of the Training Courses in Slovenia



Mobilisation Campaigns for Decision Makers


In the framework of the BiG>East project two mobilisation campaigns for decision makers were implemented in Slovenia.
