|Certificates of origin

 

The obligation to acquire and present certificates of origin to the President of the Energy Regulatory Office for cancellation stems from Article 9a(1) of the Energy Law.The obligation is deemed fulfilled if for a particular year the quantitative share of the sum of electricity stemming from the cancelled certificates of origin or from the substitution fees paid in the total annual executed electricity sales made is no less than:

- 3.6% - in 2006,

- 5.1% - in 2007,

- 7.0% - in 2008,

- 8.7% - in 2009,

- 10.4% - in 2010,

- 10.4% - in 2011,

- 10.4% - in 2012,

- 10.9% - in 2013,

- 11.4% - in 2014,

- 11.9% - in 2015*,

- 12.4% - in 2016*,

- 12.9% - in 2017*,

- 13.4% - in 2018*,

- 13.9% - in 2019*,

- 14.4% - in 2020*,

Values laid down in the Minister for Economy regulation on the on the detailed scope of the obligation to acquire and present certificates of origin for cancellation, pay the substitution fee, purchase electricity and heat produced from renewable energy sources and the obligation to confirm the data concerning the amount of electricity produced from a renewable energy source dated 19.07.2010 (The Regulation will come into force on 31.12.2012.)
