The Slovak energy market takes its first step towards liberalisation in October when an Economy Ministry rule takes effect allowing large electricity consumers to begin importing some of their energy needs.
Yearly users of over 100 GWh will be able to annually import up to one-twelfth the electricity they used over the previous year.
As of January 2003, users of at least 40GWh annually will be able to import up to a third of their needs, while in 2004 users of over 20GWh will be able to import up to two-thirds.
