Abstract—Climate change, mainly caused by increased greenhouse gases, and reduced fossil fuel reserves, has launched a more intensive use of renewable energy on a global scale. One example of application of the renewable energy is the use of biogas which is produced from livestock manure at the farmyards. The most important goal of building a biogas plant is the environment protection. In addition, it is possible to realize the positive socio-economic effects, promote rural development and make better use of human and material resources at the local level. However, the construction of cogeneration heat and power plant is a complex technical, organizational and investment venture. The objective of this paper is to present a feasibility analysis of biogas power plants for combined heat and power generation including different aspects such as available biomass resources, heat and electricity producing, verification of the requirements for connecting power plant to the grid, as well as analysis of the economic viability.
