Press release: ENVIRIA awarded all bids submitted in the Federal Network Agency’s (BNA) securing 7.5% of the total tender volume
ENVIRIA awarded all bids submitted in the Federal Network Agency’s (BNA) rooftop solar PV auction, securing 7.5% of the total tender volume successfully allocated in the first BNA round in Germany for 2022
FRANKFURT A.M., GERMANY: Solar energy specialist ENVIRIA secured a total volume of 15.305 kWp for rooftop solar installations, successfully being awarded the entire number of bids the company submitted in Germany’s BNA’s EEG Rooftop Solar tendering process in April.
Germany’s Federal Network Agency (BNA) launched the first round of its solar (PV) tender for 2022, with a total capacity of almost 767 MW (766.667 kW). The tender volume this year was massively increased compared to only 150 MW in December 2021.
In total, 163 bids with a combined volume of 204 MW were successful, bringing ENVIRIA’s bids amongst the most successful by locking approximately 7.5% of the total volume allocated in this auction round, at an above average volume weighted price. Last year the first auctions specifically for rooftop solar were launched, with a price limit of maximum 9 ct/kWh. With the annual limit dropping by 1% per calendar year compared to that of the previous, the maximum value for April’s bidding round was 8,91 ct/kWh. The prices of the successful bids in the pay-as-bid auction ranged from 7.00 ct/kWh to 8.91 ct/kWh. The volume-weighted average award price was 8.53 ct/kWh, significantly higher than in the previous round (7.43 ct/kWh).
“We are incredibly satisfied with the results of our first ever participation in the BNA tendering process. Having secured every bid we submitted is a very promising signal from the market. Staying true to our mission of becoming a decentralized utility, we intend to amplify our efforts to our own solar rooftop portfolio, which we aim to scale massively in future auction rounds,” says Melchior Schulze Brock, ENVIRIA founder and CEO.
