“Astonishing price fall”

Frankfurter Rundschau

An average successful bid of less than half a cent per kilowatt hour for offshore wind in Germany’s first competitive auction for the technology showed that renewables support did not need to be as big as it has been in recent years, writes Timot Szent-Ivanyi in an opinion piece for Frankfurter Rundschau. Thus, electricity generation with offshore wind needed to be made “the core of the Energiewende”, writes Szent-Ivanyi.

On the topic, read the CLEW article Operators to build offshore wind farms without support payments.
