German PV tender ends with the lowest price of € 0.0490 / kWh

The country's latest technology-specific PV tender was overseen, but the final prices are slightly lower than those recorded in previous procurement rounds.

Germany (Natural Energy News): Germany's Federal Network Agency (Bundesnitzgeentur) reported this week that the country's latest technology-specific tender for large-scale PV, held on July 1, brought in 174 bids for 779.4 MW of solar capacity.

The allotted quantity of the tender was quite high at 192.2 MW. The officials provided 30 bids. The final price was € 0.0469 (0.06) / kWh and € 0.0536 / kWh, slightly below the initial round.

In the onshore wind energy tender, prospective developers submitted 26 bids for a capacity of 191.0 MW, amounting to a total tender volume of 275,000 MW. Accepted bids ranged from € 0.055 / kWh to € 0.062 / kWh. Like the previous round, the average final price was € 0.0614.

"The results of the tender for wind and solar power show a well-known picture of the slowdown in the energy transition," said Julia Verlinden, spokesperson for energy policy at the Alliance 90 / Greens parliamentary group. “PV tenders for photovoltaics are regularly overbought. In the last two years, more photovoltaics could be provided for almost every tender. "

September 1 is the next technology-specific tender of the year for onshore wind farms and PV systems. On this date, innovation tenders will be held for the first time.
