  • Romania : Romania To Scrap Cogeneration Energy Tax
    March 27, 2014
    Romania's Department of Energy has prepared a draft Bill to scrap the cogeneration tax for electricity exporters. The proposal is aimed at making the country a leading supplier for central and south-eastern Europe.

    According to the Department, the Bill promotes the efficient use of Romania's "ample" energy resources, and aims to support large coal producers. The plans also take account of the need to couple with markets in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary, through alignment with the electricity wholesale market, known as the Day Ahead Market (DAM).

    The draft Bill is connected to amended criteria and conditions for implementing a support scheme for promoting high-efficiency cogeneration.
