1. Overview

EAC is carrying out Operational Unbundling in compliance with the Regulatory Decision of the Cyprus Energy Regulatory Authority (CERA), which implements the corresponding provisions of the EU.​

Through Operational Unbundling, the four Core Regulated Activities – the monopoly activities of Transmission and Distribution and the competitive activities of Generation and Supply – are separate operations within the EAC. Operational Unbundling ensures that the EAC does not exploit its dominant position and that equal opportunities are offered to private sector producers or suppliers.

At present, Operational Unbundling does not substantially affect the relationship between the EAC and its customers. However, it has been clarified that the term "consumer" refers to the commercial relationship between the EAC/ Supply and its customers, while "network user" refers to the technical aspect of connecting to the network (Transmission or Distribution). The term "network user" refers to either consumers or electricity producers.

Currently, all consumers are considered EAC customers. With the operation of the liberalised Electricity Market and the activities of independent suppliers, consumers will be in a position to choose their supplier.

The following information regard European Union citizens who wish to relocate in Cyprus. On this website you will find various applications and guidance for the connection process with EACs' electricity network as well are the connection process with an Electricity Supplier.
