Sofia Lundberg and CERE's Per-Olov Marklund wonders in a DN reply if the authors of the op-ed piece published in DN May 10th entitled “Bannlys alla politiska beslut som ger mer klimatutsläpp” (Ban all political decisions that give more climate emission) thought about how the moratorium would affect public procurement. Is a purchase stop perhaps the only solution ?
We previously reported on Kontrollstation 2015 and what CERE 's Thomas Broberg thinks about the proposal to adjust the quota curve ("New proposal leads to 2-8 öre per kWh in additional costs for consumers" ).
The proposal poses considerable costs and is poorly analyzed
"The electricity certificate system appears more and more as a tombola." The statement’s from CERE's Thomas Broberg who sees several of unanswered questions in the surveillance report (Kontrollstation 2015*) on the Swedish renewable obligation system, Second Opinion, 6th May 2014.
"The tombola has spun and out fell a cost to electricity consumers that amounts to 1.8-3.5 öre/kWh as according to estimates by the Energy Agency. The reason being the proposal to adjust the Swedish quota curve with a total of 75 TWh during the period 2016-2035."
"and with added VAT, the cost of adjustment is 2-8 öre per kWh. If one would rather talk billions than ören , then just add up over all the obligated consumers. In 2016, the total cost for electricity consumers will be 1.6 to 6 billion."
