After the Government of Romania approved an aid scheme last year, to help large industries cope with the growing cost of energy from renewable sources, this year fourteen companies are exempt from paying for the full green certificate. They will pay 40% to 85% less than normally for green certificates, based on energy consumption, Economica.net portal said.

The group includes names such as Alro, ArcelorMittal, Carpatcement, TMK Artrom and Lafarge, as reported by Romania-insider.com. The fourteen will be spared from paying EUR 75 million. However, households and other industrial consumers will have to share the costs. The government estimated that the state aid will last 10 years and will amount to EUR 750 million. Some 300 large industrial consumers should benefit from this scheme.

Similarly, according to new rules in Slovenia, energy intensive industry may pay EUR 10 million less this year for the support for renewables, while households and other businesses would contribute EUR 30 million more.
