Malta Chamber of SMEs participates during SMILES final conference
17 September 2021
The final conference gives important recommendations for the future of EU Semester from SMEs’ perspective...
GRTU Renewable Energy Section president Noel Gauci stated that he strongly welcomes Government's decision for the feed in tariff to be paid by Government itself instead of Enemalta. The sector expects this decision to be a positive move as it will eliminate grey areas when one has to negotiate the feed in tariffs for large scale Photovoltaic projects with the Malta Resources Authority.
A new rebate scheme for domestic and commercial photovoltaic installations is needed imminently. This would avoid job losses once the installations under the current schemes are completed. Following that, an improved feed in tariff must be discussed with all stakeholders to be better prepared for the future and preferably avoid the necessity for further rebate schemes. Such an exercise should make an installation feasible enough without the need of a grant from Government.
