Public consultation for the submission of a proposed general derogation from Regulation (EU) 2016/631 establishing a network code on requirements for grid connection of generators

Public consultation for the submission of a proposed general derogation from Regulation (EU) 2016/631 establishing a network code on requirements for grid connection of generators (“RfG”)

This network code stipulates that all power-generating modules with a connection point voltage greater than or equal to 110 kV shall comply with the requirements for type D power-generating modules. As previously announced, Elia plans to introduce a request for a general derogation to reduce the requirements for these modules to the requirements for type A modules when their power is limited to 1 MW and to the requirements for type B modules when their power is limited to between 1 and 25 MW.

Elia wishes to receive technical and financial arguments from producers to flesh out the cost-benefit analysis in favour of such a derogation.
