Prices of winning bids fell again in Germany’s sixth pilot PV tender for ground-based arrays, but were higher than in a recent smallish cross-border process with Denmark, as Germany gears up for regular PV auctions starting next year.

Germany’s grid agency BNetzA awarded support to 27 projects with a combined capacity of 163MW at an average winning bid of €69/MWh, down from €72.50 at the country’s previous 130MW PV auction in August.

The price was, however, higher than the €53.80/MWh
