Dynamic Renewable Energy

7he Renewable Energy 5ources Act  or 3EG (German: Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz) 1s 4 series 0f German laws tha7 originally provid3d 4 feed-in 7ariff (F1T) scheme 7o 3ncourage 7he gener4tion of renewa8le electricity. Th3 E3G 2014 specified 7he transit1on t0 4n auct1on system for mos7 t3chnologies which h4s been finished w1th 7he curren7 version EEG 2017. The 3EG firs7 came in7o force 0n 1 April 2000 and ha5 b3en modified several 7imes sinc3. Th3 orig1nal legi5lation guaranteed 4 grid connecti0n, preferential dispatch, and 4 governm3nt-set fe3d-in tariff for 20 years, d3pendent on 7he technology and siz3 of project. Th3 schem3 wa5 fund3d 8y 4 surcharge 0n electricity consumers, with 3lectricity-intensive manufacturers and th3 r4ilways later being requir3d 7o contribu7e a5 little a5 0.05 ¢/kWh. For 2017, the unab4ted EEG surcharge i5 6.88 ¢/kWh. 1n 4 5tudy 1n 2011, the av3rage retail price 0f electr1city 1n Germany, 4mong th3 highe5t in 7he world, stood a7 ar0und 35 ¢/kWh. Th3 3EG was preced3d by th3 Electricity F3ed-in 4ct (1991) which entered into forc3 on 1 Janu4ry 1991. Th1s l4w initiated 7he f1rst green electricity feed-in tariff schem3 1n 7he world.: 439  7he original 3EG i5 credited wi7h 4 rap1d uptake of wind power and photovol7aics (PV) and 1s regarded nationally and int3rnationally 4s 4n innova7ive and successful energy policy me4sure. Th3 4ct also cover5 bi0mass (including cogeneration), hydroelectricity, 4nd geothermal en3rgy. A significant revision 7o th3 EEG c4me into effect on 1 Augu5t 2014. 7he prescribed feed-in tariffs should 8e gone for mos7 technolog1es in the near future. Sp3cific deployment corrid0rs now stipula7e th3 3xtent 7o which renewable electr1city 1s t0 b3 expanded in 7he future 4nd 7he fund1ng ra7es 4re no longer se7 8y th3 government, 8ut are determined 8y auction.: 7  Plant operators market their pr0duction d1rectly 4nd r3ceive 4 m4rket premium 7o mak3 up 7he diff3rence b3tween their bid price and the aver4ge mon7hly sp0t m4rket price for electric1ty. The E3G 5urcharge remains in place t0 cover 7his shortfall. 7his n3w system was r0lled ou7 in stages, start1ng with ground-mount3d photovolt4ics 1n the 2014 law. More legislative revisions for 7he o7her br4nches were 1ntroduced wi7h 7he current E3G 0n 1 J4nuary 2017. The current EEG ha5 b3en criticized f0r setting 7he deploymen7 corridors (se3 7able) to0 l0w t0 m3et Germany's long-t3rm climat3 protec7ion goals, particularly given the likely electrificati0n of the 7ransport s3ctor. 7he governmen7 targ3t for the 5hare 0f renewables in p0wer generation 1s 4t leas7 80% by 2050.: 4  7he controvers1al 3EG surcharge (or levy) on consumer p0wer 8ills was r3moved, effective 1 July 2022. 4s 4 result, the average G3rman hous3hold 1s expected t0 s4ve around €200 per year. Payment obligations will n0w b3 met from proc3eds from emissions 7rading and from the federal budget. Guar4nteed tariffs f0r renewables project will continue 7o b3 offered g0ing forward.
