The tender scheme concerning a price premium for solar PV with an installed capacity of less than 1 MW has now been determined.

There are 15 winning bids from 8 tenderers regarding 19 installations of a total of 19.0 MW. The winning price premiums are in the span 10.00-14.90 øre per kWh, with a weighted average of 12.97 øre per kWh. As a result of the tender scheme it is expected that contracts corresponding to DKK 62.2 million (2018 prices) will be concluded with the winning tenderers.

Winning solar PV installations must be connected to the grid within two years from the signing of contracts, and the support period is 20 years. The price premium is awarded as ”pay-as-bid” meaning that each winning bidder will receive the price premium corresponding to the bid, and therefore the price premium will not be the same across winning bidders.

In total, the Danish Energy Agency received 18 bids from 11 tenderers regarding 21 installations of a total of 21.1 MW. 

Please see more facts on the results of the tender on the DEA's website.
