Abstract – Presentation:

The transition required by European renewable energy subsidy law to tendering systems poses a great challenge to the diversity of actors. For this reason, France and Germany have considered measures to enable small players to continue to participate┬á despite the competitive allocation of the subsidy. The means are nevertheless fundamentally different. While Germany has only introduced special conditions in tenders for the newly-defined citizen energy associations “B├╝rgerenergiegesellschaften”, France has introduced exemptions for small projects. These approaches will be presented, juxtaposed and analyzed with regard to the requirements of the future European Union Renewable Energy Directive.
