The Government of Serbia has decided to suspend payments of incentives for electricity produced from renewable energy sources and in high-efficiency cogeneration units– CHP, multiple sources familiar with the matter told Balkan Green Energy News.

The persons close to the government confirmed  that the Government of Serbia, at the meeting yesterday, brough decision to temporarily suspend payments of feed-in subsidies to the privileged power producers from renewable energy sources and in high-efficiency cogeneration units. The new situation goes in line with the Article 27. of the Power Purchase Agreement, which privileged power producers sign with EPS. The article states that in the case of  force majeure, one contracting party can delay its obligations.

It can be expected that Electric Power Industry of Serbia (EPS) will soon officially inform power producers about the Government decision.

According to the latest report of Electric Power Industry of Serbia, EPS, that is obliged to purchase this electricity, the average value of invoiced bills for this electricity stands at 1.672.187.080,00 RSD (EUR 14,2 million).
