ANRE wants to increase by 2% the profitability rate of energy and gas distributors and transporters that attract EU money


The National Energy Regulatory Authority proposes to provide an incentive of 2% over the regulated rate of return for electricity and gas distribution and transmission operators accessing European funds for network development, according to the draft presentation note, posted on authority’s website.

“In order to stimulate investment in projects in which European non-reimbursable funds have been attracted, it is proposed to grant an incentive of 2% above the regulated rate of return, if the investments in this category have been made and put into operation by operators after the date of entry into force of this order,” is shown in the document quoted by Agerpres.

Also, ANRE proposes the modification and completion of some methodologies for establishing the regulated tariffs for the network services in the energy field.

This is done “in the sense of including in the regulated tariffs the costs associated with the royalties for the concession of state-owned goods and the royalties provided in the concession contracts for the transmission and distribution of electricity and natural gas and/or related goods in the public property of the state or of an administrative-territorial unit, starting with the date of entry into force of the provisions of Law no. 244/2020.”
