EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

Article 39(2A) of the Electricity (Northern Ireland) Order 1992 (“the Order”) requires that the Department shall only grant a consent under that Article in relation to the construction or extension of a generating station where it is satisfied that the station to which the consent relates will meet certain criteria determined and published by the Department. Article 7(2) of the European Parliament and Council Directive 2009/72/EC imposes certain obligations on the Department in relation to these criteria. These Regulations amend Article 39 of the Order to update the references therein so that they properly reflect this obligation.
