KWKG levy from January 1, 2024

Based on the forecast values reported by the subordinate grid operators and the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA), the expected burdens under the current KWKG and EnFG were identified and the KWKG levy applicable nationwide for the forecast final consumption was determined and published on October 25. In accordance with the provisions of the EnFG, further income and expenditure items on the KWKG account introduced in 2023 are taken into account for the calculation of the KWKG levy.

A summary of the above data results in a rounded KWKG levy of 0.275 ct/kWh on non-privileged final consumption from 01.01.2024.
