Time period Extension


The period in which initial remuneration is paid is extended for offshore wind turbines that are erected at least twelve sea miles (c. 22.2 km) from shore or in a water depth of at least 20 m. For every sea mile in excess of twelve sea miles, the period is extended by 0.5 months, and for each additional metre water depth by 1.7 months. The figure shows die graduation of the period of the initial remuneration subject to the distance from the coast and the position of several realised offshore wind farms in this grid.
