In the first 11 months of the year, the green certificates (GC) related to the production of 9.15 TWh of energy from renewable sources was of 17.6 million, according to the Transelectrica site.
Considering the legislation in force, 2.8 million GC were deferred, so that only 14.8 million GC were granted for the current production, writes focus-energetic.ro.
However, 1.9 million GC were recovered for green energy production from previous years, so that, in total, during the first 11 months of the year, Transelectrica issued 16.7 million GC. Most of the certificates were recovered by the company Enel (about 435,000 GC), followed by CEZ (about 300,000 GC). Hidroelectrica, a producer that has also several micro-hydroelectric plants (MHC) for which it receives subsidies, has recovered 18,000 GC.
In Romania there are currently 808 renewable energy producers supported by green certificates. In wind power plants, 3,100 megawatts are installed, in PV – 1,366 MW, in MHC – 350 MW, and on biomass – about 140 MW.
