Inwieweit und in welchen Mengen EEG-Strom tatsächlich auch verbraucht wird, ist nicht mehr zwingend und detailliert gesetzlich vorgegeben, sondern hängt zukünftig von Entscheidungen der Energieversorgungsunternehmen, von Gesetzesauslegungen und von Börsenpreisentwicklungen ab.

Electricity production from renewable energies has been doubly privileged in Germany under the Renewable Energies Law (EEG) till 2010. The existing structures ensure that electricity is not only generated from renewable energies, and that this energy is fed into the system, but that it is also actually used.

From 2010 there will be a fundamental adjustment to the nationwide balancing mechanism of the EEG, which will also be accompanied by qualitative alterations. The extent to which, and the quantities of EEG electricity that are actually used are no longer compulsory or set down in detail under the law, but will in future depend on decisions made by the power supply companies, on interpretations of the law and on market price developments. This may have serious consequences for the further development of renewable energies.
