The average successful tariff for projects was 4.67 euro cents per kWh (US$0.0467/kWh). Successful bids ranged from 3.96-5.76 euro cents. The average is slightly higher than the 4.33 euro cents recorded in the country’s previous solar-only tender.

Onshore wind prices in the dual tender average 7.23 euro cents per kWh.

Jochen Homann, president of the Federal Network Agency said the lowest bids had been successful but indicated that there would continue to be support for other generators.

“For the success of the energy transition, however, a mix of different technologies is required,” said Homann.

The next solar-only tender is on 1 June.
