Electricity from crops - what is it worth?

August 2010

food vs fuel

One of the most topical sources of renewable energy generation is anaerobic digestion (AD). Strongly backed by the new coalition government, AD is set to play an important role in helping reduce carbon emissions and increase sustainability.

On farm AD facilities are typically fed with a combination of farm by products (animal slurries and manures) and energy crops, the most widely used of which is maize silage.

Most arable crops are suitable for anaerobic digestion subject to suitable processing and mixing to maximise biogas production and quality. With volatile commodity prices it is interesting to consider where an AD facility might fall as a prospective market for arable produce.

When does it become more profitable to use a crop as a fuel for AD than it does to sell it at global market prices?
