KWK-Surcharge

Reduction of the CHP (KWK)-Surcharge


Since 2017, the surcharge under the Act on Combined Heat and Power for energy-intensive companies is limited to 15% or 20% respectively if the amount of consumed electricity exceeds 1 GWh. A reduced KWK-surcharge will be granted to privileged companies under the Special Equalization Scheme of the EEG.
