"The new law fixes the feed-in tariff only after the renewable energy project is completed," said Sebastian Noethlichs, Executive Director of the Bulgarian Wind Energy Association. "But since a wind farm takes 18 to 24 months to be built, tariffs could be revised downward while the project is still under construction. Banks are reluctant to be exposed to this kind of risk"

"Hungary needs to reach 13% renewable energy by 2020, and the new government is looking into how to exceed this target," Peter Olajos, State Secretary for Energy and Climate Policy in the Ministry of National Economy told the workshop today. "Our aim is to create new jobs, reduce energy dependence on fossil fuels, and support rural development: renewables are one of the means to reach these goals.""In order to achieve the 2020 targets, 80% of investments must come from private investors. For this, we need to create an attractive environment: resources, which we have, grids improvements, which we can do, and a regulatory framework, which the government intends to do." "It would be a matter of great pride for me if by the end of 2014 the government could announce that installed wind capacity is quadrupled," added Olajos.
