EEG reg­is­ter da­ta and ref­er­ence val­ues for pay­ment

In accordance with the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) and the Core Energy Market Data Register Ordinance (MaStRV), the Bundesnetzagentur publishes by the last day of each calendar month the renewable energy installations that were entered into the core energy market data register in the previous calendar month.

To register your renewable energy installations and to get an overview of the registrations, please use the Core energy market data register.

In the core energy market data register all registered units, locations and market players are visible. There are filter options in the public overviews and up to 5,000 data records can be downloaded per table export. All data sets can be downloaded via the web service, further information can be found under the following link https://www.marktstammdatenregister.de/MaStRApiDokumentation.

EEG master data (registration prior the launch of the MaStR web portal)

Renewable energy installations core data (excluding PV building installations)

In the file below, the publications of the reference periods and new-build figures necessary to check the development corridors are listed on separate spreadsheets for all renewable energy sources (except for PV installations which are on, affixed to or in a building or any other construction).

Renewable electricity battery storage systems

Publication of a list of the battery storage systems exclusively storing renewable electricity.

PV installations for tenants' electricity

The Bundesnetzagentur publishes a list of the PV installations for which the operators have informed the network operator that they have allocated the installations to the form of sale of the tenants' electricity premium pursuant to section 19(1) para 3 EEG.

PV data registrations (excluding ground-mounted installations)

Publication of the PV installations registered at the Bundesnetzagentur, excepting ground-mounted installations from March 2015 on and including the total of newly installed capacity from PV installations.

The monthly figures are not republished should there be any individual corrections to the data after original publication. However, corrected values provided before the relevant deadlines are taken into account in the quarterly process of determining new EEG-regulated reference values for payment for PV installations and in the process of determining the total increase in capacity.

The installed nominal capacity reported in individual data submissions is not to be equated with the total capacity of an installation. If, for instance, a ground-mounted installation is commissioned in phases, data is generally submitted to the Bundesnetzagentur successively on different days. The installed nominal capacity of an entire installation cannot be derived from the lists published by the Bundesnetzagentur.

Reference values for payment for PV installations

The Bundesnetzagentur generally publishes on a quarterly basis the total installed capacity of all PV installations entitled to payment that serve as a basis for calculating and publishing the reference values for payment for PV installations applicable in the subsequent quarter. Corrections to already published monthly values are taken into account here.

The table below includes the partially corrected monthly values underlying this figure and the reference values for payment that apply for the following quarter for photovoltaic installations.

Additionally, information on the degression rates for PV installations that were calculated in the past by the Bundesnetzagentur is provided under the following link:

Reference values for payment for onshore wind energy

As of 2019, the level of remuneration for electricity from onshore wind installations that do not have to participate in auctions (small installations of up to 750 kW and pilot installations) will be calculated from on the basis of the award prices from previous auctions. The average of the highest accepted bids in the year before last will be used for this purpose (section 46b(1) EEG).

The 2017 auction results will be used for 2019.

highest successful bid (ct/kWh)
May 20175.78
August 20174.29
November 20173.82
Avarage value4.63

The reference value for installations starting operation in 2019 under this special provision will therefore be 4.63 ct/kWh. That is the value to be applied for a 100% reference site. The value to be applied for the specific installation will be adjusted in accordance with section 36h EEG depending on the wind yield.

The 2018 auction results will be used for 2020.

highest successful bid (ct/kWh)
February 20186.28
May 20186.28
August 20186.30
October 20186.30
Avarage value6.29

The reference value for installations starting operation in 2020 under this special provision will therefore be 6.29 ct/kWh. That is the value to be applied for a 100% reference site. The value to be applied for the specific installation will be adjusted in accordance with section 36h EEG depending on the wind yield.

Decommissioning of biomethane installations

The Bundesnetzagentur publishes data about biomethane installations which have been permanently decommissioned, as long as the former operators consent to the publication.

Publishing this data allows other operators converting their installations to use biomethane exclusively to receive payment. As a condition of payment, the EEG requires operators of such installations to prove to the operators to whose networks the installations are connected that at least as much biomethane capacity has been decommissioned as they want to commission.
