Tenders for renewables in the EU

  2. 2. EU has moved to tenders for RES support 2 Transitional phase 2015- 2016 From 2017 Competitive bidding for at least 5% of the planned RES capacity. Competitive bidding for 100% of the planned RES capacity Open to all RES generators and technologies Exemptions from bidding and tech competition possible
  3. 3. Why do we like tenders? 3 1. Market-based price discovery 2. Budget capping / planning 3. Self-regulating phase-out mechanism = avoid over- or under- compensation = avoid uncontrolled open-ended support = no need to define mature vs non-mature
