0.5% p.a. for 10yr bonds, minus 0.14% for 5yrs in Germany, but guaranteed 6.91% for government regulated new investments in power transmission network? Too little? 2018/01/17
1,100 out of 1,600 take legal action against reduction from 9.05% p.a. guaranteed monopoly returns - today at 10 a.m. you may learn more at the Hearing at the High Court in Duesseldorf where 29 of the 1,100 complaints are pending, the German "Bundesnetzagentur" reduced the monopolistic equity return from 9.05% to 6.91% for new infrastructure investments in Oct 2016. Consumers pay as much for transmission as for the electricity itself, just as in e-mobility. Large institutional investors seem to be happy with lower returns if we look at the prices they pay for infrastructure acquisitions.

The RE share in electricity production reached about 36% in 2017, in a few years it will pass the 50% mark. And we will see similar no. in e-mobility penetration, it may go faster or take longer. Instead an auto premium that only goes to the automotive industry we should build a charging infrastructure.
