The RES special account is expected to end 2021 with a surplus of 243.74 million euros, DAPEEP, the RES market operator, has announced in its latest report, released every two months.
Adding a green tax imposed on auto diesel to this figure would take the RES special account’s surplus to 335.74 million euros, including a 70 million-euro safety reserve.
The end-of-year projection takes into account consolidated figures until the end of July, as well as preliminary figures up to the end of September, the operator’s chief official Yiannis Giarentis noted in the report.
CO2 emission rights, feeding the RES special account, will continue along an upward price trajectory, the official noted.
A recent government decision giving DAPEEP control of the new Energy Transition Fund, a move promising to further increase the operator’s influence in the energy market, comes as recognition of the operator’s efforts for the country’s green energy transition, Giarentis noted.
