The production capacity of green projects in Romania increased 82 percent in 2013

The production of green energy reached e record level at the end of 2013 to 4.255 MW, 82 percent more compared to the end of 2012, according to the National Authority of Regulating in the Field of Energy.

Up to December 31, the national energy system registered wind projects of 2.503 MW, photovoltaic projects of 1.155 MW, biomass of 65 MW and Hydro of 530 MW.

December 2013 has brought the agreed GO 994/2013 stating that the new green energy production parks entering the system starting January 1, 2014 will receive fewer subsidies. So, the new photovoltaic parks will receive half of subsidies, respectively, three out of six received until 2014. The wind parks will receive fewer green certificates, reduced by 0.5 certificates until 2017 and by 0.25 certificates starting 2018. As a result, the new investors will benefit of 1.5 green certificates until 2017 and 1.75 certificates starting 2018.

Also, the small hydro-centrals will receive 0.7 percent less certificates. "From this point of view, it is possible to witness a moderation of interest showed by investors regarding the permits for distributing through the national power network," Transelectrica argued. The decision has been made following a study conducted by ANRE concluding that green energy producers benefit from a too large help hand from the Romanian state by receiving too many green certificates for the produced energy, compared to the costs of investments in production facilities. Nagy-Bege says that the EO 57/2013 should have delivered "peace and clarity in the renewable energy market" but the market is still unclear regarding the introduction of yearly capacity limitations, the green certificates' delay status and the timeline when the Government will reduce the number of green certificates following the suggestion of ANRE.
