The EEG levy could rise by 25 percent next year. This is the result of an analysis conducted by the EWI on behalf of E.ON. The Analysis shows that the levy could rise to 8.44 cents per kilowatt-hour in 2021-even if the measures from the German Klimaschutzpaket are accounted for. In 2022 the EEG levy would amount to 6.99 cents per kilowatt-hour. This means that the EEG levy in 2021 is 28 percent and in 2022 11 percent above the forecast EEG levy without the Covid 19 pandemic.
