EEG financing requirements 2024

Since 2023, renewable energies have no longer been funded via the EEG levy, but from federal budget funds.

The financing requirements for this are determined annually in advance in accordance with the Energy Financing Act (EnFG). The financing covers the difference between the income and expenditure of the transmission system operators in accordance with Annex 1 of the EnFG.

The transmission system operators publish the EEG financing requirements for 2024 on their websites by October 25, 2023 in accordance with Section 51 (1) EnFG.

The EEG financing requirement for 2024 amounts to EUR 10.616 billion.
