Romania plans to offer existing renewable energy producers the possibility to choose between two green support schemes as of 2020, or in 2021 at the latest: to stay with the green certificate support scheme or to switch to the feed-in tariff or feed-in premium scheme, said Zoltan Nagy-Bege, vice-president of the Romanian energy regulator, ANRE, on Thursday at the ETCSEE 2018 conference in...

“As we can see in the study, the currently planned nuclear power plant (NPP) projects in the Visegrad countries were assessed on the basis of budgeted figures, found in investment plans, so there is a high risk that the figures will be higher after realisation, as is the case with all the NPP projects currently nearing completion in Europe,” the Slovenian Ministry of Infrastructure told...

Ermacora: EC Against Using Capacity Mechanisms to Support National Champions

The key idea for restructuring the power market is very much about decarbonisation, as well as in terms of security of supply. Figures and studies show that these objectives can be achieved the most cost-effectively through the internal energy market, said Florian Ermacora, head of wholesale markets for electricity and gas at DG Energy at the European Commission, on Wednesday at ETCSEE 2018 in...

Gas will continue to play an important role in the transition to a low-carbon society to 2030, particularly in meeting emissions targets, enabling the integration of a growing share of renewables into the system and limiting cost increases to consumers. Even after 2050, gas will remain a key element in the energy mix. These are some of the key findings of The Sustainable Credentials of Gas, a...

“The gap between the South-East Europe (SEE) region and the rest of Europe is getting bigger. New business models are already an integrated part of Europe while the SEE region remains devoted to fossil fuels, especially coal. The future is definitely not in coal and SEE countries should ask themselves what will happen after coal. The main question must be not ‘how’ but ‘when’,” said...

“Deep decarbonisation of the EU economy is challenging, however, it is not an insurmountable challenge. Electrification is the silver bullet for deep decarbonisation and energy efficiency and energy savings are an inherent part of this electrification strategy,” said Kristian Ruby, Secretary General of Eurelectric, on Tuesday at Eurelectric’s Annual Power Summit in Ljubljana, Slovenia....

Report: SEE Faces Power Generation Deficit as Early as 2027

Electricity | Energy policy

An accelerated phase-out of coal in tandem with a steady increase in the unit cost of carbon emissions, combined with imminent demand-side disruptions, could lead to a power generation deficit in South East Europe (SEE) as early as 2027, reaching up to 150 TWh by 2040. This would disrupt the region’s electricity balance, transforming it from an exporter to an importer of electricity, according...

Kllokoqi: WB Needs to Establish DAM Infrastructure to Enable Market Coupling

It is most realistic to expect that the Serbia-4MMC day-ahead market coupling will happen in 2019, providing there is interest and commitment by the relevant stakeholders. This is because SEEPEX is already operational, which means the infrastructure is already in place. The Bulgaria-Macedonia market coupling could also happen by the end of 2019, depending on how quickly Macedonia establishes its...

While the EU has been busy with its economic and political crises, China has become a main investor in the eastern part of the continent, especially in infrastructure and energy projects, writes Wawa Wang, Public Finance Policy Officer at CEE Bankwatch Network, in Euractiv. Now, Europe is finally starting to realise the region’s potential. Just recently, German chancellor Angela Merkel has...

Currently, more than 120 organisations from the power sector are involved in blockchain projects, with about 40 pilot projects already deployed. Their aim is to find possible applications in wholesale and retail electricity markets, peer-to-peer energy market places, the provision of “flexibility” or balancing services, electric vehicle (EV) charging, network security, and markets for...
