targets of renewable energy policy
Targets of renewable energy policy
  • national long-term energy strategy (Parliament 2009)
    • target for renewables – 25% from gross final energy consumption in 2020
    • target for transport – 10% from renewables in 2020
the role of re
The role of RE
  • The share of renewable energy in Total Primary Energy Supply is 15%, ca 60% of the primary energy supply comes from oil shale
  • Bioenergy has the biggest share in RE – ca 85%, 15% are coming from other resources (mainly wind, installed capacity ca 200 MW)
main measures to promote energy generation from res
Main measures to promote energy generation from RES
  • Premium tariff support scheme for RES-E
    • large biomass CHPs
    • co-firing of biomass in oil shale power plants
    • wind energy
  • Investment support schemes for RES-E and RES-H
    • for installation of wind energy capacities (22 MW);
    • for small CHPs (biogas, biomass) and boilerhouses using fossil fuels
issues around re and regional development
Issues around RE and regional development
  • Noticeable share of energy costs that consumers pay, go to RE producers – little acceptance to go beyond adopted RE targets
  • Rural regions lose their competitive advantages, partly due to higher energy costs than in urban areas
  • New development options can be created, if agricultural waste and residues will be taken into use in biogas production with a view to achieve the RE target in transport sector
the actions by the government
The actions by the government
  • Reduce energy costs through optimisation of heat supply
    • upgrade existing DH systems if its economically justified
    • solutions based on RE are preferred
    • improve energy efficiency, particularly in residential and public buildings
the actions by the government1
The actions by the government
  • Setting up a programme for biogas use in transport sector
    • Set up biogas production infrastructure
    • Discussion, how to promote fleet increase: subsidy for car purchase or excise policy favouring natural gas or biogas use in transport sector
    • Support relevant R&D activities
