Self-generation: The way to generate electricity in multi

The ministerial decision, which has been long-awaited for 15 months, will create the basis for self-production. electricity. An official of the Ministry of Ecology and Energy (YPEN) told the Economic Post that “the text is ready and the opinion of the Waste, Energy and Water Regulatory Authority (RAAEF) is awaited for the final signature. political leadership”. Informal consultations with relevant agencies and the market are underway before publication towards the end of the month.

In addition to the method of application of network calculation (synchronized network), which is the successor of the network meter (energy network), for the self-production of energy in households and enterprises, the rules stipulated in the legislation are also provided. 5037/2023 for collective self-consumption. That is, for self-consumers of energy Renewable energy sources (APE) for joint activities, in other words, for tenants of multi-apartment buildings or for shops, businesses and offices in professional buildings, etc.

According to the market operator, an energy storage battery must be added to the photovoltaics for the grid computing project to be efficient.

The new rules for private consumers envisage that at least two self-consumers located in the same building can participate in activities together and regulate the sharing of energy produced by photovoltaic plants. According to the new scheme of collective self-consumption, the consumption of common users in buildings can be included in the energy compensation.

The pending ministerial decision will itself determine how consumers will move together, participate in activities and share the energy produced. At the same time, the Operators of the network and the electricity transmission system will determine the details for the connection of stations related to DEDDIE and ADMIE, respectively, and for the efficient operation of the collective self-consumption scheme.

Compensation of excess energy through the exchange

As for the new scheme of net-invoicing, now everyone will follow photovoltaics In case of an application to connect to the DEDDIE network, the ministerial decision will determine the method of controlling the maximum limit of the total power of RES stations and the method of simultaneous grid and virtual grid settlements.

In any case, the implementation of net-billing was decided by the political leadership of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to be implemented horizontally, that is, under the same conditions for both systems installed by households and the largest enterprises. That is, all self-consumers must sell excess energy that is not consumed at the time of production on the wholesale market. Thus, the owners of the photovoltaic system will have to contract with the Collective Representative Body (FOSE), a role taken by the Administrator of Renewable Energy Sources and Guarantees of Origin (DAPEEP) in the case of households.

How will it be sold?

“Excess energy will be sold at the appropriate price of the Energy Exchange on a quarterly basis. That is, the photovoltaic system on the roof will produce and consume as much as household needs. For excess energy, households will have to contract with DAPEEP and businesses with FOSE, which will sell the excess at prices to be determined on the exchange every quarter. At the end of the month, they will settle the account and give the money to the beneficiaries,” the source in the Ministry of Internal Affairs notes.

However, due to the market factor, an energy storage battery must be added to the photovoltaic to make the grid computing project viable.

And concludes: “There are two solutions. One of them is the subsidization of the battery and a part of photovoltaics. Otherwise, the VAT will have to be reset, so the supply costs of the whole system will be reduced by almost half, together with the already planned cost deduction.
