EC urges Poland to fully implement electricity directive.

By bne IntelliNews June 1, 2012
The European Commission has sent a reasoned opinion to Poland to urge it to comply with its legal obligation concerning reporting on all the necessary transposition measures for fully transposing the Electricity Directive, according to the EC's press release. Poland now has two months to respond. If it fails to comply, the Commission may refer it to the Court of Justice of the European Union, EC warned. In February of 2011, EU declared the need to complete the internal energy market by 2014. To achieve this, timely and complete transposition of EU legislation on the single market of gas and electricity into national law is crucial. The third energy package includes key provisions for a proper functioning of the energy markets, including new rules on unbundling of networks, rules strengthening the independence and the powers of national regulators and rules on the improvement of the functioning of retail markets to the benefit of consumers.
