Transposition of 2019 Electricity (Recast) Directive

Consultation opened on 03 September 2020. Closing date 16 October 2020.


On 5 June 2019 the European Commission made The Electricity (Recast) Directive [(EU) 2019/944] on the internal market for electricity which applies from 1 January 2021 and has a transposition date of 31 December 2020. While much of the scope of the Directive builds on policies and procedures brought forward in the 2009 Directive, it contains a number of new policies which require fresh consideration.

In this consultation paper the Department for the Economy seeks views and comments from stakeholders on a number of issues raised within the Directive and on our proposed approach to transposition.
