Abstract:This thesis analyses the causes of the rapid development of the biogas sector within Germany. The aim behind this analysis is to be able to give, based on the development of the German Biogas sector, recommendations to other European Governments who wish to increase the production of electricity generated from biogas. In order to identify the causes, this thesis rests on two pillars; a theoretical part, in which it will be highlighted why Porter’s Diamond is, for the purpose of this thesis the most applicable framework, and an empirical part in which, based on the Lower Saxon Biogas sector, different (possible) causes will be analyzed. This analysis rests thereby mainly on quantitative data, and gets backed up by interviews with experts of the Lower Saxon Biogas sector. The finding suggest that the artificially created demand on biogas, as well as the availability of maize and a short distance of biogas plant operators to supportive and related companies, can be considered as causes which explain the rapid development of the biogas sector within Germany.
