Good news for distributed power and renewables—NEA pushes for indiscriminative grid connection

95

The National Energy Administration (NEA) has issued a document titled Measures for Fair and Open Grid Services (Draft) in an effort to promote indiscriminative grid connection services for incremental distribution power networks, microgrids and new energy generation projects.

The draft enforces power grid companies to provide transmission and distribution services and abide by the relevant laws and regulations of the electricity market. Further, power grid enterprises must establish a system of grid connection for newly-built, expanded, and modified energy generation projects and specify the relevant responsible departments, work processes and working time limits for newly-built energy projects and energy export projects.
