The field of electricity in Romania is in a continuous development, which requireds periodical amendments to the Regulation on electricity in Romania. The main amendments provided in Order no. 5/2023 regarding aspects such as the establishment of the obligations of the electricity distribution operators in Romania, the conclusion of the electricity agreement in Romania, the rights and obligations of the beneficiary in Romania, the ways of supplying electricity in Romania, as well as other amendments that regulate the legal relationship between the electricity supplier in Romania and the beneficiary. The Romanian Law Firm Pavel, Mărgărit and Associates recommends contacting a lawyer specialized in energy law and concluding electricity agreement in Romania that can guide you in the field of electricity in Romania according to new amendments.
In general, the electricity supply in Romania is carried out by the electricity distribution operator in Romania based on an electricity agreement in Romania and a license. The Regulation for electricity supply in Romania also provides the possibility of supplying electricity in Romania without holding a license by a natural or legal person who owns electricity production units in Romania to customers supplied directly from electrical installations related to production units. This provision also applies to non-concessory distribution operators who provide production units to customers supplied directly from the electrical networks they operate.
A lawyer specialized in energy law and concluding electricity agreements in Romania can offer you specialized legal assistance in the field of electricity in Romania on the conclusion of electricity agreement in Romania.
As any agreement, the conclusion of the electricity agreement in Romania creates rights and obligations for the parties of the agreement. One of the obligations of the electricity distribution operator in Romania is established by Order no. 5/2023, respectively to ensure unrestricted access, free of charge and guaranteed to the information in the database on places of consumption connected to the mains distribution network.
The distribution network may be operated by the following categories of beneficiaries: final customers, for own places of consumption; the suppliers of the final customers, for the places of consumption connected to the network of the distribution operator for which the suppliers have concluded electricity agreement in Romania; other suppliers for places of consumption for which they have not concluded electricity agreement in Romania based on the acceptance of the final customer and the aggregators of the final customers, for places of consumption of aggregate final customers.
Moreover, the distribution operator in Romania shall have the obligation to allow free access to all electricity suppliers in Romania to the database, the access to data related to a place of consumption being provided based on some of customer-specific identification elements (for example, personal numerical code, place of consumption code, etc.).
Among the rights of the beneficiary in Romania, we menion the possibility of concluding for a place of consumption an electricity agremeent in Romania with one or more electricity suppliers in Romania at the same time, provided that the necessary connection and measurement points are established.
