The act entered into force on April 18 this year. according to the information published in the Journal of Laws.

On the night of Thursday to Friday (16/17 April), MPs supported almost half of the Senate’s amendments to the Act with the second package under the anti-crisis shield, enabling the use of the planned support to companies that were founded between February 1 and April 1 this year. The act was sent for signature of the President. No modifications were made to the provisions amending the Act on renewable energy sources.

The Act, as regards renewable energy sources, provides for an amendment to art. 184d of the RES Act and will allow the extension of the grid connection agreements in which the deadline for the first supply of electricity falls before 30 June 2022.

The above proposal is a consequence of the changes introduced by art. 45 of the Act of 31 March 2020 amending the Act on special solutions related to the prevention, prevention and eradication of COVID-19, other infectious diseases and crisis situations caused by them, as well as certain other acts consisting in extending the deadline for meeting the obligation of the auction participant to sell for the first time first electricity under the auction system and extension of corresponding dates for producers using guaranteed tariff systems – feed-in tariff (FiT) and premium feed-in (FiP).

In addition, under the transitional provisions of Art. 84 of the amendments, due to the current epidemiological situation, the possibility of conducting this year’s paper auctions was introduced, due to the proceedings currently conducted by the Energy Regulatory Office to select an entity that will modernize IPA and carry out platform service.
