Feed-in tariffs

Renewable electricity injected into the grid in accordance with the statutory requirements by supported generating stations attracts subsidies in the form of feed-in tariffs. These are paid out by the green power clearing and settlement agent, OeMAG. The tariffs themselves are laid down in the Ökostrom-Einspeisetarif-Verordnung (Feed-In Tariff Ordinance), which is available from our German pages.

Alternatively, hydro plants with a capacity of up to 20 MW can opt for investment grants.
