Energy bill of Romanian households to post slight growth over renewable reform

Newsroom 12/02/2017 | 09:00

The energy bill of households will go up by RON 0.30/ month in 2017 due to the renewable energy reform, according to the data from the Energy Ministry regarding the outlook for 2017 of green energy.

„The impact over the household consumers bills means a growth from RON 42/MWh to RON 47 /MWh at the level of 2017. This measure aims to bring a balance between the effort of the final consumer and the support given to the energy producers from renewable sources,” says the source.

According to the law, a certain mandatory energy quota  produced from renewable energy sources benefit from the promotion system through green certificates. The mandatory quota for 2017 is 8.3 percent.

„This means that the estimated number of green certificates that will be absorbed in 2017 will be of approximately 12 million. Applying the current law and taking into account the green certificates unused on the market in 2016, the total available green certificates amount to 25 million. Out of these, more than a half will expire, which will have a devastating impact over the renewable energy in Romania, ” say the representatives of the Ministry.

The most important changes to the renewable law refer to the functioning manner of the aid scheme by introducing a constant quantity of green certificates that will be acquired annually. The proposed changes imply the allocation of a constant quantity of green certificates during the entire period of aid scheme.
