The 2008 Budget Law includes new measures relating to the production of electricity from renewable energy sources. In particular, it introduced the possibility for small renewable plants (<1 MW and < 200 kW for wind plants) commissioned after 1 January 2008 to choose between Green Certificates and a feed in tariff mechanism (called "all inclusive tariff") for an incentive period of 15 years. Both Green Certificate and All Inclusive Tariff are differenciated by renewable energy source. Budget law 2008 established the following values for the feed-in tariff: EUR cents 20/kWh for geothermal plants EUR cents 34/kWh for tidal and wave EUR cents 22/kWh for hydroelectric EUR cents 28/kWh for biomass biogases and bioliquids (vegetal oil) when complying with EU Regulation 73/2009 EUR cents18/kWh for landfill gas, sewage treatment plant gas, biogases and bioliquids EUR cents 30/kWh for wind plants (up to 200 kW). The passage of Law no. 99 23/7/09 modifies some of these values, as shown in brackets, which apply to renewable production occuring after the laws entry into force.

This record is superseded by:Feed-in premium for renewable energy sources other than photovoltaic
