EEG Marketing Quantities Lower at 11.7 TWh in Q1 2013, after 17.9 TWh in Q1 2012

Renewable energy marketed by the TSOs amounted to 11,717 GWh in the first three months of 2013, compared to 17,853 GWh in the same period 2012.

The TSOs on 4 April released their March data on electricity marketed pursuant to Section 7(1) No. 2 Equalisation Scheme Ordinance (AusglMechV). The figures cover electricity from renewable sources marketed at the EEX energy exchange in Leipzig pursuant to the AusglMechV.

EEG quantities considerably increased in March, after very low figures for January and February.  This was due mainly to more sunshine, but the figrues were still markedly lower in the first quarter of 2013 than in the previous year, despite more installed capacity (all figures GWh:

Lower generation figures also meant lower EEG transfer expenses.  For the first quarter, the TSOS reported costs of EUR 3,031,737,428.13, and earnings of EUR 5,271,060,230.60.  This lead to a reduction of the EEG surchare account overdraft from EUR -2,691,166,648.46 at the end of December 2013 to EUR -451,843,845.99 at the end of March 2013.

For comparison: The year end figure for 2011 was positive at EUR 80,444,722.27, with a balance at the end of March 2012 of EUR 1,072,768,744.64.

  • The main reason that cause a decrease at 2013 is lower wind power generation mostly. I hope Germany will produce its half of its electricity from renewable at 2020 which will lead the world towards the renewable revolution.
