German Feed-in Tariffs 2014 (from 08)

The new Renewable Energy Sources Act 2014 provides for a somewhat revised system of fixed feed-in tariffs and marketing premiums for electricity generated from renewable energy sources. The tables below provide an overview of the German feed-in tariffs (ct/kWh) and are in principle effective from 1 August 2014. The feed-in tariffs are also the basis for calculating the applicable marketing premiums.

Please note: Feed-in tariffs are subject to changes, either by regular degression or by legislative changes. The information on this page may not have been updated to reflect the latest changes, and may not be correct.

Please also note: The tables do not reflect all details of the statutory requirements or all potential increases or reductions. Some of the details of the feed-in tariffs (e.g. regarding eligibility, bonuses, degression, etc.) are more complex than the tables can show. Furthermore, certain transitory provisions apply.
