01 Oct 2021: The Ordinance on Auctioning Sites for Alternative Energy Generation in the Exclusive Economic Zone (SoEnergieV) sets the auction rules and entered into force on 1st October. The Ordinance stipulates qualitative award criteria for the auctions, where sites are allocated to the most promising technology to be implemented in a timely manner:  expected annual volume of energy of the final energy carrier at the handover point,  energy efficiency performance during the conversion and transportation of energy,  technology readiness,  project scalability,  cost of energy, and  any foreseeable significant impact on the marine environment. The Ordinance is also part of the Economic Affairs Ministry’s contribution to implementing the National Hydrogen Strategy. It is anticipated that offshore wind with hydrogen will feature heavily in these areas. It is unclear what role the logistics for integrating the hydrogen produced into onshore infrastructure plays in the auction. The first round of technology neutral auctions will be launched by the BSH from 2022. Bidders will have a six month window until the bid deadline. Successful bidders will be entitled to apply for a planning approval from the BSH and for funding from the federal government, which has earmarked €50 million from 2022 in the context of the energy and climate package. It is not yet clear how many auctions will be planned for subsequent years.
