Poland: parliament implements EU-gas-directive; thwart Nord Stream 2

Biznesalert writes:

"On May 13, 2020, the Act amending the Act – Energy Law and the act on the promotion of electricity from high-efficiency cogeneration, adopted unanimously in the Sejm and Senate, comes into force. It introduces the provisions of the revised gas directive into Polish law. The amended Act aims to implement into the Polish legal order the provisions of the amended Gas Directive, adopted after two years of efforts by the coalition of member states built by the Polish Government. Climate Minister Michał Kurtyka argues that the adopted changes allow the use of gas pipelines from third countries (e.g. disputed Nord Stream 2) the most important pillars of EU law.- This means the end of preferential treatment of gas infrastructure from third countries and its functioning in legal vacuum – said Michał Kurtyka in the Ministry’s announcement."
