PV legal challenge against ‘disruption’ plan in October

A legal case filed by SPEF, the Hellenic Association of Photovoltaic Energy Producers, seeking the nullification of a ministerial decision for the “disruption management” measure, will take place on October 26, 2016, at the Council of State, the Supreme Administrative Court of Greece, according to reports.

The association, in its case, notes that it is seeking the annulment of the disputed ministerial decision for a large number of technical, economic and legal reasons concerning the measure with regards to proportionality and conditions for the photovoltaic sector.

The “disruption management” measure was recently introduced to enable energy cost savings for major-scale industry in exchange for shifting energy usage to off-peak hours whenever required by the operator.
