Projects with a combined capacity of 384 MW secured surcharges in Germany’s tenders for wind and solar power this month, the Federal Network Agency, also known as the Bundesnetzagetur (BNetzA) has announced.

 

As in previous months, the onshore wind tender was undersubscribed, while the interest in solar surpassed, by far, the targeted capacity. 

 

Most of the winning wind projects are planned for Schleswig-Holstein (48.6 MW), Lower Saxony (48.35 MW) and Brandenburg (41.3 MW).

 

Because of the coronavirus crisis and its impact on supply chains and project implementation, BNetzA will wait for the situation to normalise before publishing officially the award decision. This way it will not trigger certain project deadlines. The bidders will be informed of the results individually.

 

BNetzA will be holding the next tenders for onshore wind and solar plants on September 1, 2020.
