The news portal Serbia-Energy announced that Romanian electricity producer Hidroelectrica was in the proceedings against the Romanian National Authority for Energy Regulation (ANRE) regarding mandatory electricity trading imposed by the regulator and affecting electricity exports. The European Court of Justice ruled in favor of Hidroelectrica.
In its reasoning, the Court stated that the Treaty on the functioning of the EU must be interpreted as meaning that national legislation which, as interpreted by its enforcement authority (ANRE), requires national electricity producers to supply the full amount available on platforms managed by the sole operator of the national electricity market designated for electricity trading services is a measure having equivalent effect to a quantitative restriction on exports, which is not likely to be justified on grounds of public security related to security of energy supply, insofar as such legislation is not proportionate to the objective pursued.
