However, RWEA believes that the Government’s draft proposal could be further improved as it does not completely eliminate the producers’ risks, and, in some cases, it even increases the risk. It eliminates the indexing value of green certificates with the inflation in the euro area, while the price of certificates is established in the European single currency and lowers penalties for providers who do not fulfill their obligation to purchase green certificates.
