Green Certificates

Since 1999 he has been operating in Italy an incentive system of electricity produced from renewable sources, defined as the “Green Certificates”.
It is a mechanism consisting of “obligations” imposed on producers of fossil sources, combined with “benefits” offered to producers from renewable sources. The producers of fossil sources are required to transform every year a percentage of their production from fossil to renewable sources; if they don’t, or do it so partially, they must buy green certificates in amounts corresponding to the not-transformed part of energy and deliver it to the GSE. At the producers from renewable sources is granted, every year, a Green Certificate for each MWh produced, that they may trade, and so give way to those producers from fossil sources that had not reached the required result.
Green Certificates are recognized for the production of electricity from biomass, wind, hydro, biomass and biogas cogeneration.
The Decree N. 28/2011 entered into force on 29 March 2011, which transposed the renewables Directive 2009/28/EC, tracks the future of Green Certificates for systems that will enter in service after 31/12/12 and the rules for the transition.
