With regard to biomas, biogas and solar installations, average return on investment will be 8 pct under the regulated tariff and 7-11 pct in the electricity market.

The new sector regulations will not be retroactive, as current legislation remains in place until 2010 for installations which are currently operating, the ministry noted.

A new renewables plan for 2011-2020 will be drawn up next year.
