Green power injection cuts as a result of network saturation

Green power injections into the grid will be cut by as much as five percent, when required for the system’s safe operation, as a result of the grid’s saturation, according to information obtained by energypress on an imminent legislative revision concerning non-guaranteed absorption of RES-based electricity production.

This revision will be included in a draft bill being prepared by the energy ministry for a second round of RES licensing simplification as well as framework for the development of energy storage facilities.

The ministry’s draft bill is expected to be forwarded for consultation within the next few days, most probably next week, before being submitted to parliament for ratification.

The RES injection cuts will concern the country’s entire grid, the objective being to create grid space for as many RES units as possible in the upgraded transmission network to be developed by power grid operator IPTO projects planned until 2030.
