According to a press release from the EC, the Commission has decided to initiate a procedure for finding non-fulfillment of obligations by sending a letter of formal notice to Romania for restricting the export of electricity through a measure incompatible with Articles 35 and 36 of the TFEU, Directive (EU) 2019/944 and Regulation (EU) 2019/943 on the internal electricity market.
“The Commission considers that this measure has an effect equivalent to a quantitative export restriction within the meaning of Article 35 of the TFEU and cannot be justified under Article 36 of the TFEU. For the same reasons, it is considered that the measure also violates the above-mentioned Directive on the common rules for the internal electricity market and the Regulation on the internal electricity market”, the press release states.
Romania has two months to respond and remedy the deficiencies identified by the Commission. In the absence of a satisfactory answer, the Commission announces that it may decide to issue a reasoned opinion.
