Priority Network Dispatching for Renewables

Last updated: 29 August 2012
Law 2773/99 gives renewables a priority in network dispatching if the installed capacity does not exceed 50 MW or in the case of hydropower 10 MW. The priority right also covers the power surplus of auto-producers within these same capacity limits. The Law obliges the Transmission System Operator and the Public Power Company to provide connection to new generators but, in practice, the development of wind power in some mountain and island areas is slowed down by the need to simultaneously extend transmission networks.
