The transmission system operators announced the electricity surcharges for 2022 in October.
The EEG levy and the switchable load levy decrease – the remaining levies increase.
EEG surcharge 2022 drops to 3.7 cents per kWh
The EEG surcharge, together with the switchable load surcharge, is the only surcharge that will be reduced for 2022.
The EEG surcharge has already been reduced from 6.756 cents per kWh to 6.5 cents per kWh for 2021. A further reduction to 3.7 cents per kWh has now been decided for 2022.
The Areva Effect
Reduce costs through intelligent analysis.
Electricity levies and charges show savings potential for companies.
Offshore liability surcharge for 2022 increases by around 6%
After the offshore liability surcharge for 2021 was last reduced by around 5%, it will now be raised to 0.42 cents per kWh for 2022. This means that the offshore liability allocation has risen to an all-time high.
KWKG levy 2022 increases again
The surcharge for the Combined Heat and Power Act will increase again for 2021 after last year’s decline: This is how the surcharge of currently increased from 0.226 to 0.378 cents per kWh per year (2022).
According to bdew, “moderate” price increases can also be expected in the next few years, since new power plants and gas engines will be remunerated due to the switch from coal to natural gas. In addition, waste heat, environmental heat and heat from renewable energies are increasingly being integrated into CHP and heating networks.
StromNEV levy 2022 – highest level since 2012
The surcharge for the Electricity Grid Fee Ordinance will be increased to 0.437 cents per kWh in 2022. The increase compared to 2021 is therefore 0.05 cents per kWh and is therefore quite moderate compared to the last increase of 0.73 cents.
The StromNEV surcharge has increased for the third year in a row and has reached an all-time high since 2012.
Disabled load surcharge has fallen for the first time in three years
The switchable load surcharge for 2021 was 0.09 cents per kWh. For 2022, the surcharge will be 0.003 cents per kWh.
Electricity cost optimization by reducing the fixed electricity price components
Irrespective of the development of the electricity levies for the individual years, the levies together with the levies play an important role in the electricity price: these make up around 75% of the electricity price.
With the Areva effect, a model commercial enterprise with an electricity requirement of 66,000 kWh/pa can save 1,958 euros annually by optimizing fixed electricity price components. Inform now!
