Energy Sources Contribution to Total Fuel Mixture
The Revelation of the Energy Mixture is necessary in accordance with Article 91 (1) (d) of the Regulation of Electricity Market Laws
. According to the Law, consumers have the right to provide information from suppliers on the contribution of each energy source to the overall fuel mix.
According to the Decision of the Cyprus Energy Regulatory Authority (CERA) 1279/2015, suppliers are obliged to make the energy mix public in their consumer accounts and other informational material they distribute to consumers. Through the disclosure of the energy mix, consumers have the ability to choose the supplier that best meets their environmental sensitivities. The period for the publication of these data shall begin from 1 July of the year X + 1 until 30 June of year X + 2.
Additionally, suppliers should publish the environmental impacts of their electricity production to consumers.
CERA, by its decision dated May 28, 2015, approved a Methodology for Computing the Cyprus Electric Energy Mixtures and Suppliers Mixture as well as a Technical Manual relevant to the process of Computing the Energy Mixture of the Electricity of Cyprus and the Suppliers, and the Disclosure of the Supplier’s Energy Mixture of Electricity.
According to the procedure, the only evidence of the origin of the electricity is the Guarantees of Origin. The disclosure process is under the supervision of CERA, to which suppliers are entitled to apply in case of disagreements with the CTSO in terms of calculating their energy mix.
