BNetzA reacts to the impact of the corona virus for tenders under the EEG and the KWKG

The Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) is reacting to the effects of the corona virus and is adapting the mechanism for the tendering of renewable energies and CHP plants. The dates of the call for tenders and the implementation of the call for tenders will not be adjusted in the process. However, the successful bidders will not already be awarded the contract, but will first receive an assurance, so that the deadlines associated with the award will not yet begin to run. In addition, the BNetzA announces that for bids for #Wind energy on land and biomass that have already been awarded the implementation deadlines would be granted unbureaucratically by informal application.

Market Master Data Register (MaStR) online now!

The Market Master Data Register (MaStR) is the register for the German electricity and gas market and is managed by the Federal Network Agency. In MaStR, the master data for electricity and gas generation plants must be registered. In addition, the master data of market players such as plant operators, grid operators, and energy suppliers must be registered. MaStR is available online not only to the authorities but also to market players and the public. At the same time, various existing registration obligations are to be bundled in the market master data register. Due to the repeated postponement of the opening of the web portal, however, the registration obligations could only be fulfilled insufficiently so far or had to be carried out for EEG plants in the plant register.

Draft bill to amend the Market Master Data Register Regulations

On 27 September 2018, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) published a draft bill to amend the Market Master Data Register Regulations (MaStRV). The main (necessary) changes are as follows: Greater protection of personal data with regard to publications concerning smaller installations with an installed capacity of up to 30 kW and adjustment of deadlines for delays in the commissioning of the web portal. Registrations of market players, units, EEG and CHP plants and projects, which have been submitted within the first 24 months after the launch of the web portal, should be officially reported as punctual. In addition to linguistic smoothing, there are some fine adjustments regarding registration obligations.

BMWi field report to EEG 2017

The BMWi published the first field report on the amended EEG 2017 at the beginning of June 2018. The report serves the purpose of developing recommendations for the further development of the EEG as well as recommendations for the further development of the WindSeeG for the German Bundestag, whereby for the first time it is justified to obtain scientific opinions. With regard to the system integration of renewable energy, the report highlights the challenge of lowering the barrier of mandatory direct marketing from 500 kW to 100 kW. Nevertheless, the share of renewable energies in gross electricity consumption rose to 36. 2 percent in 2017, according to the experience report.
