30. January 2013. / News Serbia Energy

Serbian Government should adopt the new law for stimulating prices for electricity from renewable energy sources, Ministry of Energy stated.

Stimulating prices for purchase of electricity produced from renewable energy sources is one of the ways for Serbia to accomplish the goal for increasing energy contribution of renewable energy sources in energy consumption from 21,2 to 27%, until 2020.

The law for feed-in-tariffs predicts stimulating prices for purchase of electricity produced in small hydro power plants, from geothermal energy and biomass.

Feed-in-tariffs will be adjusted to inflation amount in euro zone. Electricity redemption price from wind power plants will decrease from 9,5 to 9,2 Euro-cent per kilowatt-hour and redemption quota will be increased from 450 to 500 MW, with this new law.

It is précised that redemption of electricity from wind power plants, 300 MW strong, will be subsidized and that amount will increase for additional 200MW of wind power plants built until 2020.

Electricity from solar plants should be paid out for 16,25 to 19,77 Euro-cent instead of previous 23 Euro-cent, depending on plant’s strength.

The 12 years duration period remained the same in the new law. It was proposed that feed-in-tariffs should be introduced to all kind of biogas, as well as for electricity produced from solar collectors placed on buildings in order to stimulate citizens to use that source more.

Energy from solar collectors on objects with installed power of 30KW will be paid out at 20,66 Euro-cent price.
