Grid connection - History

The Framework Guidelines on Electricity Grid Connection, adopted by the Agency on 20 July 2011, define the requirements to be developed in the respective network codes in the following areas:

  • Minimum standards and requirements for connection;
  • Derogations;
  • Adaptation of existing arrangements to the network code(s);
  • Compliance testing, compliance monitoring and enforcement;
  • Promotion of (real-time and other) exchange of information between parties and improved coordination.
The network codes that will stem from these Framework Guidelines are expected to address those issues, especially to facilitate the targets for penetration of renewable generation and provide a response to the challenges for the demand connection.  
Three network codes were developed pursuant to the Framework Guidelines on Electricity Grid Connection (adopted by the Agnecy on 20 July 2011), namely:
  • Network Code for Requirements for Grid Connection Applicable to all Generators;
  • Network Code on Demand Connection;
  • Network Code on HVDC Connections and DC Connected Power Park Modules.​
