Hungary calls 5th tender for feed-in tariffs
The Hungarian Energy and Public Utilities Regulatory Office (MEKH) on Friday announced its fifth tender for feed-in tariffs for energy generated from renewable resources, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Offers will be accepted in the METAR feed-in tariff framework from March 25 until March 28, 2022.
The feed-in tariffs are available in two categories: for plants with capacity between 5-20MW with distributed capacity up to 144GWh a year, and for plants with capacity between 20-50MW with distributed capacity up to 720GWh per year.
MEKH noted that a new condition for participation in the tender is having battery capacity equivalent to 10% of nameplate capacity and the ability to ensure automatically regulated reserve power to TSO MAVIR.
Support awarded in the first four tenders resulted in an annual 1,700 GWh of electricity generation using renewable resources, enough to power more than 825,000 homes a year.
