Greek Regulatory Authority for Energy (RAE) decided that a RES-supporting ETMEAR surcharge included in electricity bills will remain unchanged at 17 euros/MWh in 2023.

The decision comes after the Ministry of Energy agreed to transfer a sum of 100.5 million euros into the RES special account for 2022, and an equivalent sum in 2023. The funds were raised by a green tax on diesel fuel.

This double injection of some 200 million euros is expected to balance the RES special account at the end of 2023, when a minor deficit of 2.5 million euros has been projected.
