The combustion of biogas from farm-based anaerobic digesters offers an opportunity for on-farm renewable energy generation. Biogas is commonly combusted in a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system comprised of an engine-generator set to generate electrical power to recover thermal heat from the system. This power is generally first used to offset electricity load on the farm. Any excess power generated is transferred to the utility grid serving the farm.
