CHP companies to receive monthly “bonuses”

High efficiency cogeneration (CHP) energy companies may receive, as of April 1, monthly aids, in the form of an amount of money titled “bonus”, according to the Energy-Regulation Market Director of Dalkia Romania, Cristina Cremenescu, quoted by HotNews. The aid is meant to cover the difference between the cost of producing energy in high efficiency CHP system and the selling price. The highest electric capacity afforded by CHP plants benefiting from the support scheme is 4,000 MW. Consumers will pay up to RON 20/ MWh (RON 0.02/ KWh) for CHP-generated power, the head of the National Energy Regulatory Agency (ANRE), Iulius Dan Plaveti, stated, for HotNews.ro.

“This will be the consumers’ contribution, according to our estimates. In two weeks’ time we will have an exact figure. We hope it won’t be higher than RON 20/ MWh,” Plaveti argued. He added a household’s average consumption amounts to 100 KWh a month.

According to a list, recently approved by ANRE, 41 CHP capacities will benefit from the support scheme. The budget for the scheme amounts to RON 17.23 bln for the interval 2011-2023, and the maximum number of beneficiaries is estimated to 500 companies. The amount of the bonus will vary from one year to another, depending on the types of fuels used to produce heating and electrical power in cogeneration.
