The Energy Community’s decision to implement Chapter III of the EU’s Industrial Emissions Directive and its implications for new coal power plants in the Western Balkans, Moldova and Ukraine
Briefing | 2 April 2014
Due to the Energy Community Ministerial Council’s decision to apply the EU’s Industrial Emissions Directive, new combustion plants in the Energy Community countries have to be planned with the IED taken into consideration. Currently, there are a number of investments in new combustion plants in progress which would not comply with the new requirements if they are realised as planned. It follows, that these combustion plants would be in breach of the acquis on environment after 1 January 2018, in other words by the time they start operation.
