Wirkungen des Ausbaus erneuerbarer Energien

Impact of renewable energy sources


Work package 5: Monitoring the costs and benefits of RE expansion

Distributional effects

The distributional effects are illustrated by showing the microeconomic credits or debits which occur for different actors and are not based primarily on resource consumption. These distributional effects are caused by additional costs associated with renewable energies, increased costs in the heat sector, the merit order effect, the special equalisation scheme (BesAR), the budget to fund R&D and market development as well as the tax on electricity from renewable sources.
