Romanias green electricity production quadruples to 0.75TWh in H1.

By bne IntelliNews July 15, 2011
The number of tradable green certificates issued to renewable electricity producers, one for each MWh produced by generators covered by the scheme, quadrupled on the year to 0.75mn, and energy deliveries to the power grid increased proportionally to 0.75TWh in H1, Transelectrica reported. The certificates value of EUR 55 per unit has added up ti EUR 41.2mn. The wind power producers accounted for 75% of the total, followed by the small hydro power producers with 13% and the biomass electricity producers with 12%. We recall that the large hydro power plants are not covered by the scheme and, under the simplified system applied so far, all power generators have received one tradable green certificate (TGC) for each produced MWh, regardless of the technology. After the law 220/2008 is fully enforced, the number of TGC received by green electricity producers will rise considerably and will depend on the employed technology.
