Successful wind energy expansion, but the EEG amendment gives rise to growing uncertainty in the industry

With a net increase of 3,535.8 megawatts, 2015 was the second strongest year for onshore wind energy expansion in Germany. But the draft Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) 2016 does away with binding expansion targets, and will manage wind energy expansion on land by means of annually variable tendering quantities. This means uncertainty for manufacturers and operators.

Record achieved due to catch-up effects

Offshore wind turbines with a total capacity of 2,282.4 megawatts went on grid 2015. This demonstrates the capability of the German offshore wind industry and meets the expectations expressed at the beginning of 2015. This will however initially remain a unique record, as it is based on the catch-up effects of grid connection. The industry considers reliable, continuous expansion as a basis for more climate protection and value creation more important in the long term than any one-off records.

Wind Energy Lowers Cost Significantly

The average costs of electricity from wind turbines is now by 12 percent cheaper than four years ago. Main reasons are a cost-effective and optimized turbine technology as well as the currently low financing costs. The interest rates and a new rule in the Renewable Energy Act 2014 (EEG, cp. § 24) for suspending the remuneration for negative electricity prices involve a cost risk.
