Brief description

The Clearingstelle EEG|KWKG was initially established in 2007 as the Clearingstelle EEG by the BMU in order to solve conflicts mainly between renewable energy plant operators and grid operators. Since 2013, it has been funded by the BMWi. Its role expanded to legal questions concerning EEG plants and related electricity output. This was further extended to include CHP plants in 2018, thus, settle conflicts concerning KWKG, too. Not only providing arbitration and mediation for arising conflicts, the Clearingstelle EEG|KWKG also helps to avoid disputes by interpreting the EEG and of the KWKG in advance.
