Answers

  1. You can find the answer to the question "Why haven’t I received payment for the green certificates I sold to Elia?" (in French) in the FAQ section (only available in French) of the CWaPE website (only available in French).
  2. If you are VAT-registered, you must send your invoice for the sale of green certificates either by post (Elia System Operator, Supplier Accounts, Keizerslaan 20, 1000 Brussels) or by e-mail (gc@elia.be). 
    You can find a sample invoice here (in French).
  3. 1. You can find all of the relevant information under ‘Purchasing procedures’.
  4. You can find all of the relevant information under ‘Purchasing procedures’.
  5. Since Elia is required to purchase green certificates in Wallonia at the guaranteed minimum price of €65, you do not need to sign a contract to sell your green certificates. As a green producer, you may decide – when entering your meter reading – to sell your certificates on the open market or to Elia.
  6. If you opt to sell your green certificates to Elia, you must give your bank account number at the end of the registration process. CWaPE will send your bank details to Elia, which will then make the payment.
  7. Payment will be made within 45 days of receipt by Elia of the request for payment of the Walloon green certificates transmitted by CWAPE.
    The dates of receipt of requests for payment for Walloon green certificates are published on the Elia website in the section entitled “Date of receipt of the request for payment of the Walloon green certificates”.
  8. No. If, when inputting your metering reading, you did not opt to sell your green certificates directly to Elia, then you lose the right to sell them at the guaranteed minimum price of €65. Consequently, Elia can no longer purchase them. You can continue trying to find a buyer on the open market.
  9. On the CWaPE website (in French) you can also find answers to many questions in the FAQ section (in French).
