Greek Energy Ministry Amendment Cancels Rises of Special Duty in Electricity Bills

DEH_blakout1 The Greek Ministry of Productive Reconstruction, Environment and Energy announced on Sunday it is cancelling the increases in the special duty for the reduction of gas emissions (ETMEAR), which had been decided by Greece’s power regulator RAE, with an amendment/addition to be included in the first draft bill that will be submitted to Parliament.
It also announced it will re-examine the revenues of the account that finances renewable energy sources, which is funded by ETMEAR. “The unit charges of the special duty for the reduction of gas emissions will remain unchanged in 2015 to the levels set for 2014,” the amendment states.
According to the explanatory statement attached to the amendment, “the provision is deemed necessary to allow for the reassessment and redefinition of the revenues of the Special Account of article 40 of law 2773/1999 and service the objectives pursued without burdening customers from an increase of ETMEAR.”
