Annual statement of accounts pursuant to EEG

In accordance with the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) as amended on 21 July 2014 (hereafter referred to as EEG 2014), TSOs are obliged to publish data collected pursuant to Section 70 ff EEG 2014 and, in conjunction with a relevant report, to enable knowledge third party to trace the equalised quantities of energy and associated tariff payments.

The energy feed-ins commercially purchased by TSOs pursuant to Section 11 (1) Sentence 2 EEG 2014 and remunerated pursuant to Section 57 EEG 2014 within TransnetBW’s control area have been validated by a universally recognised auditing company.

Consecutively TransnetBW’s 2015 remunerated statement data pursuant to Sections 70 to 77 EEG 2014, that is used to implement the nationwide equalisation scheme pursuant to Sections 56 to 62 EEG 2014 in conjunction with the Equalisation Scheme Ordinance (AusglMechV), is shown.

We explicitly draw attention to the possibility that, within the scope of implementing the EEG, the audit certificates mentioned above may require corrections due to circumstances beyond TransnetBW’s control.
