Polish Biogas Association Comments on New Draft Law

PBA filed detailed comments on the new law, stressing changes that do not require higher subsidies, but improve biogas productivity. More waste substrates can be handled to reduce the impact of their management on consumers. Green Certificates should continue for small projects that allow direct sales of electricity, again saving consumers money. All types of biogas should benefit the same from regulatory procedural incentives, with support levels adjusted by cost of production as required by the EU state aid rules.

These issues have been raised for the four years that the draft legislation has been circulating. Since biogas remains a major part of the national plan to meet the 2020 EU renewable energy mandate, as well as providing many additional benefits, the revisions should be oincluded in the amendments as a priority matter.

The Polish version of the comments is here. An English version is available on request.
