The European Commission, in ongoing exchange with the energy ministry, is seeking clarification on the functional details concerning green PPAs planned as a supportive measure for the industrial sector.
Aspects for which Brussels wants further details include how the entity to be tasked with managing the PPA mechanism will purchase additional energy required and how it will sell excess green energy.
Brussels has also asked if the regulating body will have responsibilities in the balancing market and how the mechanism’s Green Pool will interact with and influence the balancing market.
The energy ministry forwarded a group of responses to Brussels’ first set of questions at the end of last week. A teleconference in early December had preceded the European Commission’s questions.
According to insiders, clarity on the support measure’s launch schedule is expected in approximately two months. In the meantime, two or three more rounds of questions from Brussels are anticipated.
