    Environmental aspects

    The small-scale renewable energy plants included in the project fall under Annex II of Directive 85/337/EC amended by 97/11/EC and 2003/35/EC. Thus, these project sub-schemes would be subject to an EIA based on a case-by-case decision or defined criteria set by the competent authorities. Repowering and conversion of fossil fuel power plants fall under Annex I of the aforementioned Directives, and are therefore subject to a full EIA. Project information provided to the Bank indicates that the EIA for most of the sub-schemes has already been completed and that competent authorities have already granted environmental permits. The details of the environmental procedures followed by the promoter (if applicable), the results of EIAs and public consultation, and mitigating measures to be applied will be reviewed during appraisal.


    The promoter follows EU public procurement procedures in line with the Utilities Directive 2004/17/EC.
