Luxembourg: Overall summary

In Luxembourg, electricity from renewable sources is promoted through a feed-in tariff and a premium tariff as well as through subsidies. The realization and the operation of new photovoltaic energy plants are granted support through tender.  The production of heat from renewable energy sources is promoted through four different subsidy schemes. Finally, the only support scheme for renewable energy sources used in transport is a quota system.

In Luxembourg, access of electricity generated from renewable energy sources to the grid is subject to the general provisions of energy law. Renewable-energy-sourced electricity is not given priority; Access to the grid shall be granted according to the principle of non-discrimination. However, electricity generated from renewable energy sources is granted various privileges like cost reductions or its preferential use in case of power loss.

Several policies aim at promoting the development, installation and usage of RES-installations, such as a training programme for RES-installers; a general research, development and demonstration (RD&D) programme and support schemes for RES-H infrastructures.
