As of August 1 this year, the Federal Network Agency had received 115 bids for solar systems on buildings and noise barriers. The Federal Network Agency announced that 106 of these bids were accepted, including a total volume of 201 MW. This means that the accepted bids are much less than the 767 MW quantity advertised by the authorities.
The goals seem ambitious, especially since the federal government is striving to provide as many roof areas as possible with solar systems. Last year a tender of 300 MW was held, bids were received for 212 MW. The Federal Network Agency announced that the next round of tenders would take place on December 1, 2022.
The prizes for this round of tenders are divided federal network agency (PDF) Overall regionally balanced, projects were awarded contracts in 14 federal states. Most of the 52 contracts went to projects in North Rhine-Westphalia, followed by 15 in Brandenburg and 14 in Saxony-Anhalt.
Since the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), which was amended in early 2021, all solar systems are no longer considered in one pot in tenders, systems for buildings and noise protection walls are separated from open spaces and other structural systems. Tender is given separately. Systems In Germany, those who wish to install a photovoltaic system with at least 750 kW of electricity and pay for their solar power must participate in such a tender in the “second section”.
In Switzerland, the Bundesrat, the government there, recently decided to make available renewable energy free of charge to areas along national roads from October 1, 2022. Concrete tests are also being conducted there to cover motorways with solar panels. In Germany, it is to be tested in the Hegau-Ost service area on the A81 in Baden-Württemberg.
