According to § 4 (3) of the German Cogeneration Law (KWK-Gesetz), the remuneration of cogeneration plants (KWK-Anlagen) is based on the normal price for electricity.

    For cogeneration plants up to a maximum power output of two megawatt, the normal price for electricity is defined as the average final settlement price of power day futures for the market area Germany at EEX in Leipzig for the respective preceding quarter.

    EEX calculates the simple average of all Phelix-DE Day Futures prices of one quarter shortly after the end of the quarter. This average value is published as KWK-Index
