Use the RGC-BECV-CALCULATOR to calculate potential aid payments under the SESTA Carbon Leakage Regulation (BECV)

Calculate your potential aid payment under the SESTA Carbon Leakage Regulation (BECV) with the new tool from our cooperation partner Ritter Gent Collegen (RGC).

The federal government passed the SESTA Carbon Leakage Regulation (BECV) on March 30, 2021. Approval by the Bundestag and the EU Commission is still pending. RGC no longer expects any significant changes.

The BECV entitles companies from (sub)sectors listed in two lists to apply for a subsidy payment to mitigate their burdens from national emissions trading (SES). We already expect a significant increase in the CO2 prices provided for in the SESTA in the coming years. There is no other way to achieve the new ambitious climate protection targets. This means that the possibility of compensation from the BECV is becoming increasingly important for companies and a significant competitive factor.

Because of this importance, RGC’s Legal-Tech unit has developed the RGC-BECV-RECHNER for you. According to RGC, you can use this on the climate website “#RGC-TOPKlima” for your company’s

  • CO2 pollution (CO2/t),
  • CO2 costs (in €) and
  • Potential compensation/aid payment (in €)

have various options for modifying the calculation and can, for example, reflect the effects of expected CO2 price increases.

If the activity of your company does not yet belong to any (sub-)sector of the BECV eligible for aid, i.e. you cannot yet benefit from it, you should urgently check the possibility of subsequent recognition with your professional association. RGC is already preparing an application for recognition for the first association.
