[29 November 2011; Sub-paragraphs 1.3, 1.7, 1.8 and 1.9 shall come into force from 1 January 2012]

2. The part of the total consumption of the electricity end users in Latvia that shall be mandatorily covered by such electricity, which is produced from renewable energy sources, for the time period until 31 December 2010 and subsequent years arranged by years and types of the renewable energy sources, is specified in Annex 1 to this Regulation.

3. Such merchants may qualify for the acquisition of the right to sell electricity produced from renewable energy sources within the scope of mandatory procurement, which produce or are planning to produce electricity from renewable energy sources in a power plant in the territory of the Republic of Latvia, using the following:

3.1. hydropower;

3.2. biogas;

3.3. any other type of solid or liquid biomass;
