Continuation of peak relief for electricity tax from 2013

The current regulation on the electricity tax peak relief as stipulated in § 10 of electricity tax law will expire at the end of 2012. In the German clay brick and roofing tile industry, around € 8 mill. to € 10 mill. electricity tax is currently refunded each year. The paper will report on the follow-on regulation that will come into effect on 1 January 2013, and discuss especially the requirements from the point of view of the clay brick and tile industry (energy management systems and ­energy audit).
