The government has issued the Regulation on Electric Power Supply Business Activities (14/2012), which implements certain articles of the Electricity Law (30/2009).
The aspects of the law that the regulation addresses include:
The regulation divides the electrical power supply business into two categories: supply for public needs and supply for private or own use. Both business categories require licences - an electric power supply business licence for the former and an operating licence for the latter. Business licences may be issued for a maximum of 30 years, while the maximum duration of an operating licence is 10 years. Both types of licence can be extended.
The regulation highlights certain provisions on the power supply business for public needs:
Regarding the power supply business for private use, Article 30 of the regulation states that an operating licence is issued according to category of use of the electricity. It identifies four categories: main, reserve, emergency and temporary.
The regulation replaces Regulation 10/1989 (as amended) and applies with effect from January 25 2012.
