Flexibility premium

Key Information
The operators of biogas plants who sell their electricity directly, i.e. sell them to third parties by supply agreements or at the stock market, may claim a flexibility premium for providing additional installed capacity for on-demand use. For a plant operator to be eligible for the flexibility premium, he shall provide additional installed capacity that may only be used on demand rather than on a regular basis. This premium may be received on top of and separately from the market premium.
