German to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Energy / Power Generation
German term or phrase: Pacht-Energieeinspeisevertrag
This is a bullet point in a list of Projektphasen of a company that develops and implements projects of biogas plants.

I have a hard time with this term. My thoughts are along the lines of "land-lease power feed-in agreement". Since its a part of a list, there's not much context, I'm afraid.

Other items in the list:

• technische u. kaufmännische Betriebsführung
• Bau und Inbetriebnahme
• Bauantragsverfahren und Baugenehmigung
• Stromnetzanbindung und Energieeinspeisung
• Planung
• Standortsicherung und –entwicklung

Thanks for any help!

(energy) supply agreement/contract

this contract is a contract between the company making the energy and the enduser. This might include, that the user sells energy to the company (e.g. solar energy) and buys it back at special rates. See for example the link. I believe, you don't have to translate the "Pacht". These contracts are called Einspeisevertrag/Energieeinspeisevertrag or Anschlussnutzungsvertrag. You might also drop the "energy" if it is clear from the context, that it is energy. German terms are sometimes to detailed and long.

agree  Andrew D: energy supply contract (energy feed-in), which derives from the Electricity Feed Act (Stromeinspeisungsgesetz). http://www.erneuerbare-energien.de/inhalt/39915/ etc

  -> Thanks Andrew, also for the informative link

agree  JohnGBell: As it is a biogas system, I suspect that this agreement is to sell electricity TO the network. http://www.biostrom.de/index.php?option=com_content&task=blo...
