Renewable energy producers protest against 40% fee in front of building of Bulgaria’s energy regulator

.

Sofia. Our decision to impose a 40% fee on green energy producers complies completely with the law and does not contradict any European directives, Bulgaria’s State Energy and Water Regulatory Commission Chairman Angel Semerdzhiev told journalists after the body’s regular meeting, FOCUS News Agency reported.
According to him the open letter sent to the commission contains very untrue data and misinterpretation of the rules.
The preferential prices and the way renewable energy resources are settled are subject to each country’s internal legislation.
“We have such a mechanism and it is one of the best. But it is impossible for the mechanism to work against the interests of the society. Currently it is working against the interests of the society. Each country has right to take measures to stabilize the system and protect consumers. It is impossible for something to develop more than originally planned. I mean photovoltaic power stations. The twist and boom we witnesses in May and June this year burden the system the way all systems in Europe are. Instead of buying electricity from our cheap sources, as it is envisaged in the price framework, they are stopped to accept energy from photovoltaic power stations. This will cause additional expenses in the system. When we determined the connection fee, we took into account each producer’s abilities to continue working with normal profits,” he said.

Sofia. The Bulgarian Wind Energy Association starts suing the State Energy and Water Regulatory Commission due to the connection fee regulation. According to the association the fee is discriminatory, because it concerns only some types of power stations. Wind farms, for example, will pay much more than solar farms, Bulgarian Wind Energy Association CEO Sebastian Noethlichs told Bulgaria ON AIR television.
According to him the regulatory body’s decision is not in compliance with the law and will force some power stations into bankruptcy.
The decision should be made with an open debate and be adopted in the parliament, as the legal process is, he explained.
We expect that the court will cancel the fee, but this will not happen quickly, he said.
The new fees for connecting alternative energy sites to the national grid aims to change the real prices of renewable energy. Investors cannot now trust the government, the decisions made, said Sebastian Noethlichs.
He is concerned that the government does not realize that the same investors would later buy shares the National Electricity Company (NEK) would sell and that they are the ones who would invest again in Bulgaria.

Sofia. As of September 18, investors in green energy installations will be obliged to pay access fees to utility companies CEZ, Energo-Pro and EVN, as decided by the State Energy and Water Regulatory Commission (SEWRC). Up until now, producers of energy from renewables (wind farms, solar parks and hydroelectric power plants) were exempt from any charges concerning the access to the electricity distribution grid. With the new requirement, the state inflicts yet another blow on the Renewable Energy Sources (RES) sector in the country after the purchasing prices for green energy were halved in the early summer of 2012. Zemya Daily reads.

22 Bulgarian hotels might be blacklisted in Russia: expert
Sofia. This year more than 400,000 Russian tourists have visited Bulgaria, so Russia is a very important market to us, Rumen Draganov, Chairman of the Institute for Analyses and Assessments in Tourism, told FOCUS Radio, referring to Russia’s Federal Agency for Tourism head Alexander Radkov’s statement that Bulgarian hotels might be blacklisted.
