Designing renewable energy tenders for Germany

Ecofys supports the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in developing a design concept for tendering renewable energy plants. The concept paper and scientific recommendations have been published for consultation end July 2015. The introduction of the tendering scheme is part of the reform of the German Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG). Previously Ecofys already assisted the BMWi in designing the first German pilot auction for PV [German].

Ecofys has comprehensive expertise on renewable energy auctions and is currently also consulting the European Commission on auction schemes in other EU Member States.

Our full recommendations are available in German here, an English version of the summary of the tender design can be downloaded here.
