Bid prices in Germany’s latest onshore wind round rose to an average of €57.3/MWh following an auction that was undersubscribed. According to the German Federal Network Agency, BNetzA, 604MW of wind capacity across 111 bids entered the second German onshore wind auction this year.
This was less than the 670MW that was on offer. The average support price of €57.3/MWh was up on the €47.3/MWh seen at the last German onshore wind auction in February 2018. The German Government made temporary changes to the design of their onshore wind auctions this year by requiring community projects to have an environmental permit before bidding and shortening the project development lead-time.
