Another 6 billion for SDE + spring round 2018

Another 6 billion for SDE + spring round 2018

The budget for the SDE + spring round 2018 is again € 6 billion. A second round of opening is expected in the autumn. The minister intends to make the same budget available. He will take a final decision on this in June 2018.

The implementation of the Sustainable Energy Production (SDE +) Regulation in 2018 was announced on 6 December 2017 in the letter to the House of Representatives. The SDE + is an operating subsidy, whereby the difference between the cost price of gray (fossil) energy and that of renewable energy is reimbursed over a period of up to 15 years. The amount of subsidy depends on the type and amount of renewable energy produced.

The SDE + accelerates the rollout of renewable energy. As in previous years, the SDE + will be open in 2018 for projects that generate energy from renewable sources such as wind, biomass, solar, geothermal and water.
