Press release: Norway is placing the consumer-driven market for renewable electricity under threat

In recent days the Norwegian Minister of Petroleum and Energy has questioned the role of a consumer-driven electricity market in Norway based on the EU system of Guarantees of Origin. Seen in light of official signals in a review of energy policies to be discussed in the Norwegian Parliament in June, this raises concerns. The Norwegian authorities are investigating abandoning the consumer-driven system for renewables in favour of a production-based system. RECS International calls on all stakeholders in Norway to protect consumer choice and begin a dialogue over these issues, which affect consumers in Norway and around the EU.

Press Release_The European Court of Justice has ruled against Aland Vindkraft.

The ruling in favour of the Swedish Energy Agency (Energimyndigheten) in the case of Åland Vindkraft AB v. Energimyndigheten was not in line with the earlier opinion of the Advocate General. This outcome allows protectionist national electricity support schemes to continue, thus encouraging producers to go for the highest subsidies instead of the most cost-efficient generation. RECS International is concerned that the cost-efficient generation of renewable energy will be slowed down, making it harder for the much-needed energy transition to take place across Europe. By restricting international competition, this ruling will also keep the cost of support for European renewables high and reduce the competitiveness of European industries. RECS International believes that consumers will ultimately pay the price for this decision in the form of higher taxes, tariffs and fees, when the alternative was to promote cheap renewable power that is generated where it is most efficient to do so.
