The Base Price for Green Certificates Goes Up

The Energy Regulatory Office just announced that the 2014 replacement fee (the amount charged if an electrical company does not have either the green energy or the green certificates to fill the gap) will go to 300 PLN/MWhr. This is the base price for green certificates. When combined with the upcoming shortage of certificates when co-firing and old hydro lose their support (70% of current certificates), this will mean that the income to renewable energy producers will go up significantly - even without a new law in effect.

The new law is obligated to provide levelized support for biogas, which has been calculated to be twice the value of the Green Certificate.  I predict a biogas boom in the next 12-18 months. If they make technical changes that we have suggested in the law, it will also contribute to making biogas a more available option for organic waste management.
