The Law aims for the efficient use of energy and reducing the impact of fossil fuels on the environment. It represents the first comprehensive codification of provisions concerning the planning and the promotion of renewable energy sources.
It introduces a support scheme for RES-electricity producers in the form of a premium tariff and a guaranteed feed-in tariff (for installations smaller than 30 kW).
In order to qualify for government support, all renewable energy projects must win a bid in a public tender.
The Law also provides the foundation for sub-statutory regulations and decrees, which contain specifying provisions on quotas and the support schemes.
