Curtailments in RES/CHP: legal analysis of the proposed regulations of the new bill

[article by Metaxas & Associates published at]

The draft law, posted for public consultation by the competent ministry of environment and energy this week, proposes inter alia regulations on curtailments and redistribution to solve the difficult equation of the need for increased penetration of RES in limited available electrical space. In other words, this is a proposed amendment to the Act. 4951/2022 and in particular Article 10 and the addition of new Articles 10A and 10B.

Overall, legal concerns arise over the newly proposed rules, mainly due to an overly generalised and reduntant delegation of powers to the competent minister to adopt implementing regulation.
