Feed-in tariffs for renewable energy and cogeneration (Règlement du 12 février 2008 et du 23 novembre 2012)

Source: IEA/IRENA Renewables Policies Database
Last updated: 19 July 2018

The Act on production of electricity based on renewable energy sources establishes system of certificates guaranteeing renewable origin of the electricity produced. Certificates are necessary for the administration purposes and dealings between plant’s owner and network operator and other administrative purposes.

 

The Act outlines method of calculating feed-in tariff (FIT) levels for renewable energy electricity. 

FIT levels vary depending on the renewable energy source and generation capacity of the plant.

FITs are being guaranteed for a period of 15 years for all types of renewable plants counting from the year when the plant was connected to the national grid.
