German Feed-in Tariffs 2011

The Renewable Energy Sources Act provides for a system of fixed feed-in tariffs for electricity generated from renewable energy sources.  The tables below provide an overview of the German feed-in tariffs (Ct/kwh) for facilities commissioned in 2011.

Please note: The tables 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.
