The new Redispatch 2.0 process poses challenges for many operators of EEG plants. Mastering these requires a lot of time and knowledge. Especially the claiming of compensation and the associated calculations are complex. We support you in this process!

The success of the energy transition is a key factor for the future and competitiveness of Germany and Europe. The related expansion of fluctuating energy producers, such as wind and solar energy, creates major challenges, especially with regard to the capacity and stability of the power grids.

Electricity grid operators in Germany are responsible for the reliability of the power grid. In order to ensure this, power plants have to be temporarily regulated by grid operators. Since October 2021, this has been done in Germany as part of the so-called Redispatch 2.0.

Plant operators are entitled to compensation

For losses incurred, plant operators can claim compensation. For this purpose, the lost work incurred must be determined and proven. To do so, the lost production must be determined and proven.

While operators of smaller plants can use simplified calculation methods (Pauschalabrechnung), operators of offshore wind farms are required to determine the lost work according to the so-called “Spitzabrechnungsverfahren”. This leads to more accurate results, but is also more complex to apply and requires handling large amounts of data.

We have been determining the outage production for offshore wind farms according to the Spitzabrechnungsverfahren for several years and can point to a market share of over 30% in Germany in this area. Our experience gives us extensive opportunities for benchmarking, guarantees shortened process cycle times and thus effectively reduces fluctuations in our clients’ cash flow.
