Marghem: N-VA just don't want to kernuitstap
“It is of the greatest interest to as quickly as possible, the framework act on the capaciteitsvergoedingsmechanisme to vote, at the latest in 2021 to be able to start with the procurement of the fired gas plants. That way we can have the calendar for the kernuitstap respect, but that is simply not what the N-VA wants.” Reacts Energieminister Marie-Christine Marghem (MR), the criticism of the former in a statement.

N-VA left the beginning of this year to know the government in current affairs, want to help even before the elections with a support mechanism for new-fired gas plants. But the party does not want that the families need for an additional contribution on the energy bill must pay. Energieminister Marie Christine Marghem (MR) estimates this contribution at about 15 euros per year. N-VA also has little understanding for the fact that the minister is not communicating over the cost of the new power plants.

“But that's just impossible” said Marghem. “The capaciteitsvergoedingsmechanisme is based on the competition between the different operators, so that the consumer as little as possible should support it.” Because there is still no invitation to tender is, there are no offers of the operators. “Also, the electricity price at the time that the new power plants come into effect, plays a role. The funding will therefore only be worked out in implementing decrees, after the mood of the framework. The estimate of 15 euro per family comes from the study of the Planning bureau and professor Johan Albrecht.”

Marghem regrets to say that the aggressiveness and the generalisations of the former state secretary Theo Francken (N-VA). “He seems to campaign to want to carry on the back of his former partners.” Francken tweette this morning that a lot of MR-ministers had for years been a block to the leg.


CD&V is pretty confident that the mechanism for the elections. “But also we are worried about the affordability of the invoice,” says Leen Dierick, energiespecialist of CD&V. “the coalition agreement is that there is a energienorm must come, in order to avoid the electricity in the us is much more expensive than in the neighbouring countries. This stays quiet at Marghem.”

“We can be the support mechanism for the fired gas plants also with other parties approve. Everyone wants to be a kernuitstap in 2025," says Dierick. “The capaciteitsvergoedingsmechanisme, the grant for the fired gas plants, therefore, is discussed in the government when the N-VA still formed a part", responding Mp Leen Dierick. "It is, however, not confirmed by the N-VA. It will now as bill in the parliament, and I hear that there are also other parties are willing to bring it to approve it.”
