 Green certificates in Romania
- a summary
The share of renewables in the brut electricity consumption is provided only by hydro, and is estimated to:
28.8% (with large hydro) and 0.65% (without large hydro).
The basic laws governing the energy sector are the Electricity and Heat Law (Government Ordinance 63/1998) and the Energy Efficiency Law (99/2000), mention in general terms, the intention to promote renewables.
  In April 2003 it was issued the Government Decision no. 443 of 10 April 2003, on the Promotion of Electricity Production from Renewable Energy Sources. This Decision was meant to start the transposition of the Directive 2001/77. The act builds the framework for further secondary legislation to introduce support market mechanisms for renewables. It establishes also the target for renewables electricity production as a quota of the gross power consumption: 30% in 2010. This target is quite modest, starting from 29% today, and may not address necessarily other sources than large hydro.
Under GD no.443, within 6 month after April 2004, the term provided for the Decision to come to effect, the ANRE regulatory body will issue a proposal for a regulation dedicated to Green certificates mechanism. Hence, it is expected that the Green Certification mechanism will not be operational sooner than 2005
