National Energy Regulatory Authority (ANRE) issued 110 permits last year for setting up new power production units, 92% being for renewable energy, Energy World magazine’s portal said.

According to the watchdog’s report, 71 permits for solar, 12 for wind farms, 9 for hydrocarbons, 12 for hydropower, 4 for biogas-fired facilities and 3 for biomass were issued. Capacity totalled 1,056 MW. The capacity installed in renewable energy units licensed in 2014 totalled 357 MW, of which 219 MW in wind farms, 21 MW in hydroelectric generation, 34 MW in biomass, including burning gas obtained from fermented waste and fermented water treatment mud, and 83 MW in solar farms.

Of the total capacity installed in renewable energy units, 256 MW were taken out from the green certificates subsidy scheme in the year, while 515 MW was temporarily suspended, representing power plants with an installed capacity in excess of 125 MW that the European Commission was notified about in line with national legislation.

At the end of last year, the capacity installed in licensed renewable energy units totalled 3,935 MW, of which 3,853 MW representing plants with electricity production licenses and 82 MW plants with construction permits.
