DIRECTIVE 2018-2001 ON THE PROMOTION OF THE USE OF ENERGY FROM RENEWABLE SOURCES.pdf
This Directive establishes a common framework for the promotion of energy from renewable sources. It sets a binding Union target for the overall share of energy from renewable sources in the Union's gross final consumption of energy in 2030. It also lays down rules on financial support for electricity from renewable sources, on self-consumption of such electricity, on the use of energy from renewable sources in the heating and cooling sector and in the transport sector, on regional cooperation between Member States, and between Member States and third countries, on guarantees of origin, on administrative procedures and on information and training. It also establishes sustainability and greenhouse gas emissions saving criteria for biofuels, bioliquids and biomass fuels.
REGULATION 2019-943 ON THE INTERNAL MARKET FOR ELECTRICITY.pdf
This Regulation aims to:
(a) set the basis for an efficient achievement of the objectives of the Energy Union and in particular the climate and
energy framework for 2030 by enabling market signals to be delivered for increased efficiency, higher share of
renewable energy sources, security of supply, flexibility, sustainability, decarbonisation and innovation;
(b) set fundamental principles for well-functioning, integrated electricity markets, which allow all resource providers and
electricity customers non-discriminatory market access, empower consumers, ensure competitiveness on the global
market as well as demand response, energy storage and energy efficiency, and facilitate aggregation of distributed
demand and supply, and enable market and sectoral integration and market-based remuneration of electricity
generated from renewable sources;
(c) set fair rules for cross-border exchanges in electricity, thus enhancing competition within the internal market for
electricity, taking into account the particular characteristics of national and regional markets, including the
establishment of a compensation mechanism for cross-border flows of electricity, the setting of harmonised
principles on cross-border transmission charges and the allocation of available capacities of interconnections
between national transmission systems;
(d) facilitate the emergence of a well-functioning and transparent wholesale market, contributing to a high level of
security of electricity supply, and provide for mechanisms to harmonise the rules for cross-border exchanges in
DIRECTIVE 2019-944 ON COMMON RULES FOR THE INTERNAL MARKET FOR ELECTRICITY.pdf
This Directive establishes common rules for the generation, transmission, distribution, energy storage and supply of
electricity, together with consumer protection provisions, with a view to creating truly integrated competitive, consumercentred, flexible, fair and transparent electricity markets in the Union.
This Directive aims at introducing common rules for the transmission, distribution, supply and storage of natural gas. It concerns mainly natural gas, liquefied natural gas (LNG), biogas and gas from biomass.
The present directive concerns the control of major accident hazards involving dangerous substances. Vasilikos Power Station drew up a Security Report in accordance with EU Directives in 2008-2009, which was fully revised in 2013-2014, and Dhekelia Power Station did the same in 2016.
