Germany starts tenders for offshore wind power plants
Germany’s grid regulator BNetzA starts its first call for tenders for offshore wind power plants, the Federal Network Agency said in a press release. After introducing tenders for new solar power plants, the BNetzA “now begins the transition to a competition-based support scheme also for offshore wind power” with an initial capacity of 1,550 megawatts. Bids exceeding a feed-in tariff of 12 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) will not be considered, it added.
