International experience with tenders for supporting RES-E

Electricity from renewable energy sources

Published: 21/04/2015

Ecofys has analysed the international experience with RE auction schemes in different countries in Europe and around the world. Our reports and presentations give insights into the experience with different auction schemes and provide conclusions on challenges and opportunities of designing effective and efficient RE auction schemes.

Ecofys is currently supporting the German Federal Ministry for Economy and Energy (BMWi) in the reform of the German Renewable Energy Act and the design of an auction scheme for all renewable energy technologies. The recommendations will focus on Wind Onshore, Wind Offshore and rooftop PV. Previously Ecofys already assisted the BMWi in designing the first German pilot auction for PV. Ecofys is also consulting the European Commission on auction schemes in other EU Member States.
