Support Scheme for Renewable (Hydropower) Generation - Resolution 403

Source: IEA/IRENA Renewables Policies Database
Last updated: 18 January 2022

The "Renewable Energy Production and Use Support Scheme (Hydroelectric Power Plants)" defines measures to facilitate the construction and operation of a hydroelectric power plant (HPP) with a private initiator of more than 5 MW. The support scheme includes:

- a support period of ten years from the issuance of the HPP commissioning and production license, within 8 months per year;

- a premium tariff of USD 0.015/kWh paid as a supplement to the wholesale price fixed for the relevant hour. If the difference between the wholesale price and USD 0.055 is less than USD 0.015, then the premium tariff will be calculated by the above difference.
