IWR: Renewable Surcharge to Increase Despite Fewer PV and Wind Power Input in First Three Quarters of 2013

PV and wind power input into the German grids in the first three quarters of 2013 was 2.1 % lower than in the same perioad last year, IWR – Internationales Wirtschaftsforum Regenerative Energien IWR  (Renewable Energy Industry Institute, Münster) deduced from data provided by the energy exchange EEX. Yet the renewable surcharge for consumers is likely to rise by 15% (as of next year) IWR pointed out.
