Energy law in Slovakia comes into line with that of EU

Slovak lawmakers passed three energy-related laws October 26 - the Energy
Act, the amendment to the Regulation in Network Industries Act, and the
Thermal Energy Act, the TASR news wire wrote.

The Energy Act harmonises energy-industry legislation with European Union law. This signals a move towards the full liberalisation of the energy industry, by setting common rules for internal electricity and gas markets.

The measure also incorporates EU directives designed to promote the use of electricity from renewable sources.

The Thermal Energy Act lays down the conditions for doing business in the thermal energy sector.

The amendment to the Regulation in Network Industries Act transposes EU
directives on the regulation of electricity and gas markets and places greater responsibility on the regulatory office URSO for ensuring the efficient operation of the market.
