This report revolves around the Danish Feed-in tariff and Feed-in Premium system, and the upcoming political changes in this tariff system. The system, the public service obligations (PSO), has from the mid-nineties been supporting the development of renewable energy in Denmark. The PSO-system is funded through a fee paid on the consumed electric. Those funds are used to give financial aid to the production of renewable energy, in different ways.
The EU Commission analyzed the PSO-system in 2014, and saw some complications with the system and the European Union’s trade rules. This resulted in a political decision to restructure the financing of the PSO-system, thus the needed funds will come from the state budget from 2017.
The aim of this report is to analyze the restructuring of the PSO-system. This will be done relating to the future Danish and EU´s goals for environmental energy development.
The method used for the analysis, is a document analysis. The document analysis will be based on document and reports from different public and private organizations to cover the knowledge and opinions surrounding the political restructuring of the PSO-system.
The report results in conclusion on which effect the restructuring of the PSO-system have on the Danish and EU´s goals for environmental energy development. The restructuring will result in a higher energy consumption, which is in contrast with the goals. Furthermore, will the restructuring result in an increased emission of greenhouse gases for at least the next four years.
Finally the restructuring of the PSO-system will create a less stable investment basis for further investment in renewable energy.
