Germany: Tendering Model Will Determine Future Industry Development

On June 4 at the "WAB Offshore Legal Day 2015" in Hamburg, German offshore wind energy experts, companies and institutes will discuss major legal issues of the offshore wind industry.

This includes, among others, future determination of the cost of electricity generated offshore through invitations to tender.

For the price determination of the feed-in tariff for renewable energy, the lawmakers have decided in 2014 to change the system and want to change the instrument of future tendering. So far, the price of the electricity from renewable sources has been established by the policy.

German federal government is currently looking for a model to introduce calls for tenders for wind power at sea.

WAB Offshore Legal Day is organized by WAB eV, the network of wind energy industry in northwest Germany and the nationwide partner for the offshore wind industry.
