Author / Source: Austrian Energy Agency

The regulation of feed-in tariffs for electricity generated from renewable energy sources is a very important instrument to encourage the erection of new plants and enhance the development of new technologies. Some examples of the new feed-in tariff regime in Austria are given for wind, photovoltaic, solid biomass and Biogas:


Wind

  • The Green Electricity Act 2010 foresees a feed-in tariff of € 9,7 cent/kWh to increase the share of wind power by 700 MW until 2015

Photovoltaic

  • attached to building 5-20 kWpeak € 38 cent/kWh, >20kwpeak € 33 cent/kWh
  • detached 5-20 kWpeak € 35 cent/kWh, >20kWpeak 25 cent/kWh

Solid Biomass

  • max. capacity 500 kW € 14,98 Cent/kWh
  • max. capacity >500 kW – 1 MW € 13,54 Cent/kWh
  • max. capacity > 1 MW – 1,5 MW € 13,10 Cent/kWh
  • max. capacity > 1,5 MW – 2 MW € 12,97 Cent/kWh
  • max. capacity > 2 MW – 5 MW € 12,26 Cent/kWh
  • max. capacity > 5 MW – 10 MW € 12,06 Cent/kWh

Biogas (agricultural residues)

  • max. capacity 250 kW € 18,5 Cent/kWh
  • max. capacity > 250 – 500 kW € 16,5 Cent/kWh
  • max. capacity >500 kW € 13,0 Cent/kWh
