CJEU has summoned and reviewed the long waited case C-180/18


UEGEP is strongly enthusiastic that CJEU will issue a decision on the case that has the same legal question as the 274 small-scale RES producers affected by §18 of Final and Additional Provisions of the Energy Act. The details on the case are as follows:

Case C-180/18: Request for a preliminary ruling from the Consiglio di Stato (Italy) lodged on 9 March 2018 — Agrenergy Srl v Ministero dello Sviluppo Economico

Question referred

Should Article 3(3)(a) of Directive 2009/28/EC (1) be interpreted — including in view of the general principle of the protection of legitimate expectations and the overall system of rules introduced by that directive to incentivise the production of energy from renewable sources — as rendering incompatible with EU law national legislation which allows the Italian Government, in subsequent implementing decrees, to reduce or even remove incentives introduced earlier?
