The Government of Serbia has adopted the Draft Law on the Amendments to the Law on the Use of Renewable Energy Sources, eKapija learns.

The draft amendments to the law adopted in April 2021 were the subject of a three-week public discussion until February 9.

Problems with the implementation of the law adopted in April 2021 are cited as the reason for amending it.

According to the Ministry of Mining and Energy, the amendments could eliminate the problems and create the conditions for the realization of new RES projects and the implementation of auctions, without jeopardizing the functioning of the operator of the transfer system and the guaranteed public supplier.

In that sense, the balance responsibility, which, according to the current law, lies on the guaranteed supplier, once the amendments to the law are adopted, should become a responsibility of the producer, that is, the participant in the auctions. Also, the amendments to the law should limit the concept of prosumers to only those prosumers that connect to the distribution network.

Of the more important new features, what should be highlighted is the proposition for the maximum auction price for RES projects to be set by the Ministry, instead of the Energy Agency, which aims to prevent the potential collapse of the auction process.
