Germany starts second tender in 2018 for onshore wind power
Germany’s Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) has started the second auction for onshore wind power in 2018. The tendered volume is about 670 megawatt and bids can be submitted until 1 May, the BNetzA says in a press release. The maximum support level is 6.3 cents per kilowatt hour. Contrary to earlier auctions in 2017, citizens’ energy cooperatives lose their privilege to submit bids without having obtained a construction license first.
