On 29 December 2020, the Spanish Government approved Royal Decree 1183/2020 on access and connection to the transmission and distribution electricity grids (“RD 1183/2020”). This new RD was published in Spain’s Official Gazette on 30 December 2020 and entered into force on 31 December 2020.
In this document you will find a summary mainly focused on the impact of RD 1183/2020 and the new access and connection regulations on renewable energy generators. Note, however, that RD 1183/2020 includes other measures that may affect storage and self-consumption. In general, it applies to the access and connection rights to be obtained not only by renewable electricity generators, but by all generators, transmission and distribution companies, consumers and holders of storage facilities.
