In 2015, CO2 reductions using renewable energy electricity supported by the German Renewable Sources Act (EEG) amounted to about 103 million tonnes. In the same period, net EEG payments amounted to about EUR 22.6 billion. Average cost per tonne of CO2 reduced using the EEG therefore amounted to about EUR 219/tonne. During the same period, the price for EU Emission Allowances (EUA) at the EEX secondary market was somewhere between above EUR 6 and below EUR 9 per tonne CO2.

The four German transmission system operators (TSOs) have published their forecasts for the 2015 EEG surcharge range and the 5-year medium term (Mittelfristprognose). They expect the renewables surcharge or EEG surcharge for 2015 to range between 5.85 to 6,86 ct/kWh, i.e. 0.35 ct/kWh less respectively 0.66 ct/kWh more than the recently announced EEG surcharge of 6.24 ct/kWh for 2014.
The Regional Court of Stuttgart did not see the necessity to stay a lawsuit brought by the Spinnwerberei Uhingen against the utility EnBW and submit the case to the Federal Constitutional Court (BVerfG). It dismissed the case in which plaintiff demanded repayment of the so-called EEG surcharge from EnBW because of alleged lack of constitutionality.
According to the latest data by the German transmission system operators, renewable energy plant operators received payments pursuant to the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) of approximately EUR 19.5 billion. Including further costs related to the sale of the renewable energy, costs amount to over EUR 20 billion, which ultimately have to be borne by the electricity consumers.
The Ordinance that cuts the management premium (Managementprämienverordnung – MaPrV) pursuant to the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) for solar and wind power as of 1 January 2013 has been promulgated in the Federal Law Gazette.
In accordance with legal requirements, the four German transmission system operators (TSOs) have published their forecasts for the 2014 EEG surcharge range and their 5-year medium term forecast. They expect the surcharge for 2014 to range between 4.89 and 5.74 ct/kWh. This would only be a slight increase of approximately 9% for the upper end of the range compared with the surcharge of 5,277 ct/kWh for 2013.
Today the four German transmission system operators (TSOs) officially announced the surcharge for renewable energy pursuant to the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) for 2013, the so-called EEG surcharge (EEG Umlage). As widely expected it will rise from 3.592 ct/kWh in 2012 to 5,277 ct/kWh in 2013, constituting an increase of 46.9%. Consumers that cannot reclaim the (additional) 19% VAT will pay 6.28 ct/kWh in total.
The surcharge or reallocation charge for renewable energy sources pursuant to the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) may rise from 3.592 ct/kWh in 2012 to between 4.8 to 5.2 ct/kWh in 2013, the newspaper Handelsblatt reported.
According to calculations of the German transmission system operators, the EEG surcharge is likely to increase from 3.592 ct/kWh in 2012 to between 3.66 and 4.74 ct/kWh in 2013.
The German transmission system operators (TSOs) have today published the EEG reallocation charge (also called EEG surcharge) for 2012. It amounts to 3.592 ct/kWh. This constitutes a slight increase compared with the 2011 charge of 3.53 ct/kWh.
