Description:

New feed-in tariffs for renewable electricity were determined in December 2012 by the Federal Ministry for Economics, Family and Youth, for new contracts for electricity produced from wind, biomass, biogas, landfill and sewage gas, geothermal and solar in EUR cents/kWh.

Contracts for wind energy, solar PV, landfill and sewage gas and geothermal energy last 13 years, while the rest (biomass and other biogas) last 15 years.

For waste containing high solid biomass content, the tariff is reduced by 25% or 40% depending on the type of biomass.

Co-combustion of solid biomass in thermal power plants: 6.12 EUR cents/kWh. This tariff is reduced by 20% or 30% depending on the type of biomass.

Tariffs are reduced 20% for biogas from the co-fermentation of waste materials.

A supplement of 2.00 is received when used in efficient cogeneration, or for treatment of natural gas quality.
