Policy description The Federal Council of Ministers introduced a Green Certificate Scheme project by royal decree dealing with the renewable-electricity market. It defined the procedures for licensing off-shore installations, for giving the guarantee of origin and the delivery of the green certificates. It also determined the quota of electricity from renewable energy sources delivered to the users connected to the distribution net (from 2% in 2002 up to 6% in 2006), the fine for not fulfilling the quota being EUR 75 per certificate (corresponding to 1 MWh). It also set the obligation to the transport grid manager for buying the green certificates at a minimum price (equivalent to EUR 0.02/kWh for biomass, EUR 0.05/kWh for wind energy and up to EUR 0.15/kWh for solar energy).
