Coal phase-out: EWI develops methods for determining possible compensation payments for electricity intensive industries

How does the accelerated coal phase-out affect the wholesale electricity price – and how can this effect be estimated in the course of a compensation mechanism? In a new report commissioned by the WirtschaftsVereinigung Metalle e.V., scientists from EWI have developed and described three concrete methods for this purpose. In addition, they have analysed what effects the coal phase-out decided by the cabinet will have on the other electricity cost components of industrial companies.

The background to this is that both the final report of the so called coal commission and the Kohleausstiegsgesetz passed by the German Cabinet call for a compensation mechanism. This instrument is intended to compensate for possible electricity price increases that the coal phase-out may bring to the electricity intensive industry. The extent to which these compensatory measures are necessary to ensure the continued international competitiveness of German industry is not part of the report.

Discussion of future challenges of supply security in the electricity market 2.0

It is questionable whether the current design of the electricity market will be able to guarantee the current level of supply security in the future. This is because the decline in conventional generation and the simultaneous expansion of supply-dependent renewable energies pose challenges for the market. This is the result of a new study commissioned by Zukunft Erdgas e.V. and carried out by the Institute of Energy Economics at the University of Cologne (EWI).

EWI Merit-Order Tool 2020
The EWI Merit-Order Tool enables the determination and graphical representation of an average merit order of the German conventional power plant fleet in 2019. To represent the merit order of the conventional power plants, standard assumptions for the other parameters (fuel price, emission allowance price, transport costs, other variable costs, non-availabilities and emission factors) are defined. Users can vary the underlying assumptions to analyse and visualise the effect of changing fuel prices, power plant shutdowns/constructions or other assumptions on the merit order.
