The article presents the experiences in the cogeneration energy from biogas at the Gubin-Guben sewage treatment plant. It has been shown that the production of biogas allows coverage of up to 65% of its electricity demand. In the year 2011, after obtaining a license for “green energy” from biogas, the cost of the purchase of energy in comparison with the year 2010 was lower by about (€36,000). The consumption of electricity with respect to 1 m3 of sewage amounts to 0.51 kWh/m3.
