The energy ministry is preparing amendments to restructure the RES special account and create two new sub-accounts that will offer support for new RES projects and energy storage facilities.
These amendments, incorporating a series of EU directives, will lead to the establishment of a remuneration framework for energy storage units, based on a feed-in premium model, as has been previously reported by energypress.
The amendments will also create a new RES sub-account for support to new RES projects, defined as projects launched from January 1, 2021 onwards.
The establishment of a new RES sub-account supporting new RES projects has been set as a condition if the existing RES special account is to receive a 202 million-euro boost through the Recovery and Resilience Facility.
The procedure is expected to be completed by June, so that this amount can be made available for the RES special account, sources at the energy ministry have informed.
