Connection to electricity grid (injection of electricity)

Connection to electricity grid (injection of electricity)

This LAP deals with:
• The grid connection agreements with electricity grid operators,
• The equipment required to connect the stationary fuel cell and to inject all produced or only surplus electricity into the grid,
• The qualification requirements for professionals entitled to carry out the connection works,
• The differences in treatment between the fuel cells micro-CHP and other comparable technologies.

Technology to be compared with: Difference of treatment between the Fuel cells and the benchmark technology.
Is it a barrier? Yes
Type of Barrier Economic barriers, Regulatory gap
Assessment Severity
2
Assessment Connection to the electricity grid may sometimes be very difficult based on the experience with RES in Bulgaria. Hydrogen specific legislation has to be in place as well as a favourable environment stimulation the industry. Nevertheless, there is industrial potential in Bulgaria as there is a lot of energy from RES (wind and solar). Also, involvement in demo project and publicity on the matter is neededUnclear duration for connection, high economic cost, lack of public and political awareness; FCs are not perceived as co–generation from a legal perspective
