Abstract
This Law, consisting of 48 articles, and providing for a partial harmonisation of the Cypriot Legislation with the Directive 2018/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources, establishes a common framework for the promotion and encouragement of the use of energy from renewable sources and therefore defines a binding Union target for the overall share of energy from renewable sources in the gross final energy consumption of the European Union in the year 2030 and rules for the financial support of electricity produced from renewable sources, for the self-consumption of similar electricity and for administrative procedures related. The Law concerns: waste heat and cooling; geothermal energy; environmental energy; renewable energy community; financial instruments.
The Law covers the following matters: support for energy from biofuels, bioliquids and biomass respecting criteria of sustainability and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions; incentives for the market-driven integration of electricity from renewable sources into the electricity market; participation of producers from other Member States; certification, fees and licensing procedures; environmental and social impacts of the procedures; promotion of renewable energy sources in buildings; gas production facilities from renewable energy sources; measures accessible to all consumers; ecological standards and related risk assessment; offences and penalties.
