Germany: EEG surcharge will drop by 5.7% in 2019

Germany will reduce its so-called EEG contribution by 5.7% in 2019. The latter will therefore increase from 67.92 € / MWh in 2018 to 64.05 € / MWh next year.

This tax, which is one of the main symbols of the renewable energy development support policy put in place in Germany, represents almost 50% of the electricity bill for Corporate customers. Electro-intensive consumers can continue to benefit, under certain conditions, from partial exemptions that reduce the contribution in fine due between 0.5 and 6 € / MWh.

To explain this decline, grid operators argue that renewable producers need fewer subsidies given the rise in market prices.

This good news could however be partially offset next year by the increase in shipping costs, which should increase by 3.5%.
