BMU: Almost Half of the Renewable Energy Marketed Directly

More and more producers of renewable energy are selling the electricity directly, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) informed. According to latest data from the transmission system operators (TSOs), almost half of the electricity from renewable sources has been traded entirely via the electricity exchange, and was therefore subject to competition in the wholesale market, BMU said. A year and a half after the EEG amendment (of 2012) and the introduction of the market premium, and only six months after the corresponding management premium ordinance entered into force, considerable progress had been made, the ministry stated.
