A brief historic introduction

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

  • Minimum standards and requirements for connection,

  • Derogations,

  • Adaptation of existing arrangements to the network codes,

  • Compliance testing, monitoring and enforcement,

  • Exchange of information between parties and improved coordination.

The network codes that stem from these Framework Guidelines focus on meeting the renewable generation targets and providing a solution on the integration of demand-response.​


Three network codes were developed following the Framework Guidelines on Electricity Grid Connection:

  • The Network Code for Requirements for Grid Connection Applicable to all Generators (RfG Regulation, which entered into force on 17 May 2016),

  • The Network Code on Demand Connection (DCC Re​gulation, which entered into force on 7 September 2016),

  • The Network Code on HVDC Connections and DC Connected Power Park Modules (HVDC Regulation, which entered into force on 28 September 2016). ​
