Production subsidy

On 26 August 2016, the European Commission approved state aid worth 140 million EUR for the support of the renewable energy sector in Malta in the years 2016-2020.
The scheme will provide premium payments to wind, solar, biogas, hydropower and biomass operators.
The Commission also stated that, in line with the 2014 Guidelines on state aid for environmental protection and energy, the operators shall receive premium payments instead of feed-in-tariffs.
A state measure in the GTA database is assessed solely in terms of the extent to which its implementation affects the extent of discrimination against foreign commercial interests. On this metric, the state aid proposed here is discriminatory.
