EEG Special Compensation Scheme

BesAR – Special equalisation scheme under the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG)

The promotion of renewable energy forms (the energy transition) has increased considerably in its complexity since 2000. The legal tax alone has increased more than ten-fold. The development of costs for the promotion of renewable energies, as well as state aid requirements on behalf of the EU Commission, have also led to a considerable amendment frequency. The EEG surcharge is, in the meantime, responsible for nearly 30% of the electricity costs.

The very special compensation scheme enables electricity-intensive customers to reduce this burden considerably. In addition to the railway companies, companies from areas of the manufacturing industry are eligible to apply.

We check, in close consultation with our customers, the application requirements and accompany, or organize, the corresponding application. On our client’s request, we take over further communication with the Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control (BAFA).
