  1. 1. VREG’s experiences and lessons The Solar Future – 23 maart 2011 Vlaamse Reguleringsinstantie voor de Elektriciteits- en Gasmarkt
  2. 2. Overview•  How to obtain GSC?•  Some statistics, situation today•  New legislation on the way
  3. 3. Conditions GSCVlaamse Reguleringsinstantie voor de Elektriciteits- en Gasmarkt
  4. 4. 4 steps1.  Tests2.  Register with the VREG3.  Register with the grid administrator4.  Communicate production to the VREG
  5. 5. 1) Always: AREI-test•  Before startup of the installation –  Check whether it is safe to start –  No GSC for possible production before AREI-test – Consumption is included in the report•  Set date of commissioning –  Minimum support and start 20 or 15 years
  6. 6. > 111 kWp: green electricity test•  After startup and installation production meter –  Checks if production is being measured correctly
  7. 7. Importance of tests: start certificates•  PV ≤ 111 kW (= 100.000 kWh/year) –  From date AREI test – ≤ 10 kW: start = consumption at AREI-test(0 kWh) –  Registration VREG max 1 year after commisioning – Otherwise, GSC from moment of registration"  PV > 111 kW –  From date full green electricity testing report
  8. 8. 2) Registering with the VREG•  Forms and explanation on www.vreg.be > zonnepanelen > wat na plaatsing? > aanmelden bij de VREG•  Special forms for –  PV < 10 kW (online, new version end of March) –  PV > 10 kW (on paper)
  9. 9. Selling to DNB•  Account number visible to DNB•  Automatic sales •  Right after setting up GSC •  Fastest way to receive money • No automatic sales? •  Only for installations > 10 kW •  When guarantees originally need to be handed in to the supplier •  Add explanation to the registration application
  10. 10. 3) Registering with grid administrator•  > 10 kW: connection-research beforehand –  Contact the administrator on time"  ≤ 10 kW: register connection afterwards –  PVZ-number from the VREG will be necessary
  11. 11. Registering with grid administrator•  Connection conditions differ between DNB’s –  Usually: AREI-test, application form, single line diagram and attest of the inverters•  DNB checks: date commissioning at VREG at least matches date AREI-test, consumption equals consumption AREI-test.•  If ok: DNB indicates this in the VREG database –  “Technical ok” –  Without this indication no GSC can be sold to minimum support
  12. 12. Registering with grid administrator•  How? –  www.eandis.be > Milieu > Zonnepanelen > Melding van een lokale productie =< 10 kVA op een bestaande aansluiting –  www.infrax.be > Ik heb zonnepanelen > Meld uw installatie bij Infrax –  www.pbe.be > Rationeel energiegebruik > Groene stroom > PV cellen –  Other administrators: contact
  13. 13. 4) Communicating production to VREG: installations > 10 kW•  Production meter of the grid administrator•  NB reports monthly to VREG – Middle of the next month•  VREG produces cerftificates on a montly basis – End of subsequent month – Afterwards sale and possibly send invoice•  New cases: reporting needs to be started – Can take a month more
  14. 14. Installations ≤ 10 kW•  Owner gains access to database – Username and password•  Complements consumption – Per 1.000 kWh additional – Automatic verification on feasability•  Certificates automatically sold to DNB
  15. 15. Some statisticsVlaamse Reguleringsinstantie voor de Elektriciteits- en Gasmarkt
  16. 16. Evolution capacity and number of installations•  Status 20 March 2011, stats not definitive •  Adopted in 2010, case to be processed
  17. 17. Number of granted GSC•  See website: www.vreg.be > Energiemarkt > Statistieken > Groene stroom
  18. 18. Changes Energy decree Vlaamse Reguleringsinstantie voor de Elektriciteits- en Gasmarkt
  19. 19. Status•  Design decree under consideration in Flemish parliament •  Hearing ongoing•  Changes in text still possible•  After approval to be publicised in Belgian State Paper –  Changes are put into effect on the date of publication
  20. 20. What will change? An overview•  Minimum support: – Faster descent (every 3 months) – Depends on the capacity and electricity-use – Used on the spot or injectio?•  Expansions – Different price ⇒ seperate meter mandatory –  Was already applied this way – Not every expansion receives minimum support
  21. 21. Peak capacity at 1 access point ≤ 1 MW Minimum  support  per  Date  of  commissioning   Dura2on   cer2ficate  2006-­‐20091   €  450  2010   €  350  Jan  t.e.m.  June  2011   €  330  Juli  t.e.m.  sept  2011   €  300   20  years  Oct  t.e.m.  dec  2011   €  270  Jan  t.e.m.  march  2012   €  250  Apr  t.e.m.  june  2012   €  230  Juli  t.e.m.  dec  2012   €  210  2013   €  190  2014   €  150   15  years  2015   €  110  From  2016  on   €  90  
  22. 22. Peak capacity at 1 access point > 1 MW and more than 50% used on location Minimum  support  per  Date  of  commissioning   Dura2on   cer2ficate  2006-­‐20091   €  450  2010   €  350  Jan  t.e.m.  june  2011   €  330   20  years  Juli  t.e.m.  dec  2011   €  240  Jan  t.e.m.  Junie  2012   €  150  Juli  t.e.m.  dec  2012   €  125  From  2013  on   €  90   15  years  
  23. 23. Peak capacity at 1 access point > 1 MW and more than 50% injected Minimum  support  per  Date  of  commissioning   Dura2on   cer2ficate  2006-­‐20091   €  450  2010   €  350  Jan  t.e.m.  June  2011   €  330   20  years  Juli  t.e.m.  sept  2011   €  240  Okt  t.e.m.  dec  2011   €  150  2012   €  90  From  2013  on   15  years  
  24. 24. More/less than 50% injected?•  Based on expectations for first year after commissioning –  So clear defenition of minimum support on the moment of application•  VREG requests use at access point of the last three years at DNB –  Applicant can prove this himself, when the last 3 years are no accurate reference (for example: company expansion)).•  Estimated production: 900 kWh/kWp/year
  25. 25. No minimum support when expansion meets 4 conditions:•  Commissioned after 1 april 2011?•  One access point•  Less than 2 years sinds commissiong original installation or last expansion•  Total peak capacity after expansion > 10 kWp –  So no issue for private customers
