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 the FAQ section of the CWaPE website (only available in French).
  2. Producers that are VAT-registered for the sale of green certificates (VAT Decision, no. E.T.114.454, dd. 28.10.2014) must, to release the payment, send an invoice to Elia either by post (Elia System Operator, Supplier Accounts, Boulevard de l’Empereur 20, 1000 Brussels) or by e-mail (gc@elia.be). You can find an example invoice here (in French).
  3. 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. For the payment, Elia will use the bank details recorded in the CWaPE database. Producers (holders of a CWaPE account) can update their bank details by completing the "Déclaration de coordonnées bancaires" available in French or in German at www.cwape.be or simply by contacting the CWaPE call centre (081/33.08.10). CWaPE will forward your bank details to Elia, which will then make the payment.
  7. CWaPE has a legal deadline of 75 days in which to draw up and send a payment list to Elia. 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. On CWaPE's website, you can also view Elia's payment deadlines as of 7 October 2013 via the following link: Visualiser les délais de paiement par Elia à partir du 07 octobre 2013.
  8. If, when inputting your metering reading, you do 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.
