Auctions and sale of Walloon regional green certificates

In accordance with Article 42 §6 and §7 of the Electricity Decree of 12 April 2001, Solar Chest is organising auctions of the green certificates it holds under the reservation mechanism.

Sale of Walloon green certificates - auction organized by Solar Chest

In order to spread the tariff impact of the public service obligation that weighs in on Elia because of the obligation to buy green certificates at a guaranteed minimum price, the Walloon regulation put in place a reservation mechanism in 2015 for a portion of the excess certificates.  Through this mechanism, certificates (with an extension of their remaining validity period) are temporarily withdrawn from the market and kept in reserve by Solar Chest and, a few months before the expiry of their reservation, offered back for resale on the market.

In this context, Solar Chest is organizing an auction for a proposed volume of a bit more than 846.154 certificates as provided in Article 42 of the Electricity Decree of 12 April 2001.

Bids must be submitted to Solar Chest no later than Friday 11 September à 16h.

The practical details of these auctions can be found on the Solar Chest website at the following address.

Notice of next auction

Solar Chest will still organize various auctions between 2020 and 2022.
