The contribution paid by consumers for renewable energy, through the green certificate system, will increase in the next period, after a law for supporting green energy will be modified, said the Emil Calota, deputy president of Romania'a National Authority for Energy Regulation (ANRE).
The increase will be an “unpopular matter”, but the technocrat Government takes this risk, said Calota.
He didn’t mention by how much the electricity bill would increase. According to sources in the sector, the contribution will go up from RON 42 (EUR 9.3) per MWh to RON 52 (EUR 11.5) per MWh.
Calota also said that Romania needs to define the renewable energy targets that it will take responsibility for in front of the European Commission for 2030, Romania Insider writes.
