The Romanian tax collection agency ANAF has drafted and published for public consultation a draft law for the collection of an 80% tax on income generated by energy products above 450 RON (90 EUR) per MWh (megawatt hour ).

The average electricity price on the spot market in December, when 40% of the electricity delivered to end users was purchased on this market, was RON 1,139/MWh and the high price of CO2 certificates was partly responsible for this. responsible, according to business paper Ziarul Financiar reported.

A windfall tax like the one proposed by ANAF was announced late last year as a source of funding for energy consumption subsidies, which went into effect in November.
