Grid absorption limits for new RES stations to create space

The ministry is planning to impose dispatch limits on new RES units at areas with saturated networks so that an increased number of RES units can be connected to the grid.

Legislation for this ministry plan, still at an early stage, could eventually be attached to a second round of RES licensing simplification measures currently being worked on. This draft bill will also incorporate measures promoting energy storage and offshore wind farms.

A similar-minded measure had been implemented in 2013 for new wind energy facilities in saturated areas but the government now wants to expand its reach to all RES technologies.

These absorption limits are also planned to apply for RES units on non-interconnected islands.
