Post date: 21/10/2018 - 18:03
On Friday, the German Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur) announced the results of the latest tender for PV systems above 750 kW with a deadline of October 1. The tendered capacity of 182 MW was more than three times oversubscribed with 76 bids for a total of 551 MW. 37 bids with a total of 192 MW were awarded.
The surcharges ranged between 3.86 and 5.15 Eurocents (¢4.44 to 5.93) per kWh. In the preliminary round the range was 3.89 to 5.96 Eurocents (¢4.48 to 6.86). The average, quantity-weighted price of 4.69 Eurocents (¢5.40) was slightly higher than the 4.59 Eurocents (¢5.28) of the preliminary round.
A tender for onshore wind power with the same deadline ended with 62 bids for 400 MW; the 670 MW tender was thus clearly under-subscribed. The surcharges ranged from 5.00 to 6.30 Eurocents (¢5.76 to 7.25), the average being 6.26 Eurocents (¢7.21).
