Auctions for renewable energy support – Suitability, design, and first lessons learned

Marie-Christin Haufe and Karl-Martin Ehrhart

Energy Policy, 2018, vol. 121, issue C, 217-224

Abstract: Auctions are a promising tool to support worldwide renewable energy expansion. Nevertheless, their introduction poses a serious challenge to both policy makers and project developers. Our aim is to develop a bridge between auction theory and the implementation of auctions in the context of renewable energy support (RES). We present suitable theoretical concepts to model the specific situations for RES. In addition, we provide structured theory-based guidance for implementation and participation.
