Secretary of state at the Ministry of Energy Corina Popescu said that Romania will have to adopt new targets for renewable energy due to the fact that current green certificates support scheme will be suspended at the end of 2016. She also pointed out that the Ministry of Energy does not intend to impose new kind of RES support scheme in 2017.
The Ministry did not establish a minimum price of green certificates either, although several companies from the renewable energy sector proposed that the minimal price should be 20 euros per certificate. However, the Government considers that the price of 27 euros (the same price was set back in 2011) would be more acceptable.
