EEG Clearing Agency Adjusts Rules of Procedure and Fees to EEG 2014

Clearingstelle EEG (EEG Clearing Agency) has amended and adjusted its rules of procedure (Verfahrensordnung – VerfO) and table of fees (Entgeltordnung – EntgeltO) to the EEG that came into force on 1 August 2014 (EEG 2014).

1. Main Amendments

Clearingstelle EEG serves interested parties with regard to the interpretation and disputes relating to the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG). The latest amendments apply to all proceedings initiated later than 3 August 2015.

EEG Clearing Agency highlights the following two amendments

  • If so-called vote-proceedings (Votumsverfahren; EEG Clearing Agency decides on individual legal or technical questions relating to the EEG in a way similar to a court) are found to be of fundamental importance, proceedings can be sped up. While in the past the parties had the right to call in an associate judge (Beisitzer) that could be chosen from a list of accredited associations, the parties now (only) have the right to ask for a written opinion by one of the accredited associations (Section 26 para. 2 VerfO).
  • For small PV installations the thresholds in the table of fees were lowered from 30 kW to 10 kW and from 100 kW to 40 kW (Section 3 para 3 EntgeltO).

The new rules of procedure and the table of fees can be found at the webpages of EEG Clearing Agency under „Downloads“ (in German).
