{{tariffItemType.Name}}
This tariff module allows you to enter additional costs that arise either once-only at the beginning of a analysis period of profitability, monthly, annually or per kilowatt hour. This tariff module allows you to enter the energy and demand charges that are scaled based on the annual consumption or the purchased power. Examples (Germany): offshore liability levy, § 19 levy. This tariff module allows you to enter the energy and demand charges that are only valid at specific times per day, week or year. This tariff module allows you to enter the energy and demand charges above and below of a specified period of use. This is calculated from the ratio of the total energy during a twelve-month period and the highest load within this period. This tariff module contains the additional input fields that are required for the performance-related tariff used in Belgium. It also activates the appropriate calculation method to determine the relevant maximum grid feed-in power in which the 12 maximum monthly values are averaged to form an annual value.

You can add the capacity tariff (Belgium) to the tariff here. Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory.

You can add fixed cost to the tariff here. If several fixed cost modules are indicated, they add up. Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory.
