Mandatory procurement components

The mandatory procurement is a support mechanism set by the state for electricity producers generating electricity at cogeneration plants or from renewable energy sources.

 

The administration of the mandatory procurement of electricity is provided by the public trader whose duties have been fulfilled by Enerģijas publiskais tirgotājs JSC since 1st of April 2014. Mandatory procurement costs are covered by all end users of electricity in the form of mandatory procurement components (MPC) payments. The size of the MPC is approved by the Public Utilities Commission (the Regulator).

 

As from 1st of January 2019 the MPC for end users consists of:

  • the component from generators generating electricity in the cogeneration – 0.00599 EUR/kWh,
  • the component from generators who generate electricity from renewable energy resources – 0.00875 EUR/kWh,
  • the capacity component amount for household connections and other connections that does not change.
