We are seeking to ensure stakeholders are aware of forthcoming changes and to seek their comments and views on how the Electricity Directive is transposed into domestic legislation, in order to maintain the operation of the Single Electricity Market (SEM).
Consultation opened on 03 September 2020. Closing date 16 October 2020.
SummaryOn 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.
