Fixer Fahrplan - wie funktionierts

How does it work?

Based on your plant types and locations, we draw up a contract for your EEG direct marketing and register your plants with the grid operator.

As a rule, the grid operator pays the market premium for the plants without a fixed feed-in tariff directly to the operating company within the framework of the two-stream model. If desired, the single-stream model can also be agreed upon for a fee, so that the market premium payment is made by Vattenfall.

Furthermore, we offer additional optional services such as load profile data dispatch, electronic invoice dispatch, peak billing procedure, Section 51 (1) EEG hedging, group guarantee and remote control tests. If REMIT transaction reports are legally required for your plant, we will take care of them free of charge.

What is the market premium?

In the case of direct marketing of electricity from renewable energies, the electricity is sold in most cases via the market premium model on the electricity exchange. Instead of the EEG subsidy, the direct marketer receives an average monthly market value and the market premium. The difference between the wholesale electricity price and the plant-specific subsidy amount is thus compensated by the market premium.

What is direct marketing of electricity?

In direct marketing, electricity from renewable energies is sold directly, for example via the market premium model on the EEX power exchange. A distinction is made between the mandatory direct marketing of new plants and the optional direct marketing of existing plants.


New plants that were put into operation on or after 1 January 2016 and have an installed capacity of at least 100 kW must market their electricity directly (Section 20 EEG 2021). In addition, these systems must be remotely controllable. Existing plants can easily switch to direct marketing and return to the usual remuneration model on a monthly basis.

Who pays the market premium?

The market premium is paid out by the distribution network operator. In addition, the plant operator receives the exchange revenue from the direct marketer as the average monthly market value of the corresponding energy source (wind, solar). The sum of the market premium and the market value is at least equal to the fixed feed-in tariff.

How does the market premium model work?

The market premium model ensures the plant operator a revenue at least equal to the fixed feed-in tariff. It consists of the market value, which is paid out by the direct marketer, and the market premium, which is paid out by the distribution grid operator. The market premium compensates for the difference between the current market value and the plant-specific subsidy amount.
