“Federal Network Agency launches first onshore wind tender”
The Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) launched Germany’s first onshore wind tender, introduced by last year’s reform of the Renewable Energy Act (EEG), the agency says in a press release. Tenders affect facilities with an installed capacity larger than 750 kilowatts (kW). In this round of bidding a total volume of 800 megawatts is tendered, and bids must not exceed 7 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh).
