Georgiev, Todorov & Co has successfully represented the Port of Burgas on appeal of a decision of the Energy and Water Regulatory Commission in an administrative dispute regarding a connection to Bulgaria's national electricity transmission grid.
According to Georgiev, Todorov & Co, "an essential issue for resolving the dispute was the subject of the proceedings before the Court of Justice of the European Union on a reference for a preliminary ruling in relation to another business. With a clear and definite position, fully adopted by the national administrative court, the CJEU ruled that the voltage level is not the only determining criterion to consider whether a customer is treated as connected to the electricity transmission or distribution grid."
"The Administrative Court of Sofia-city dismissed at first instance the appeal of the electricity distribution operator and recognize the right of the state enterprise of direct connection to the electricity transmission grid," the firm reported.
Georgiev, Todorov & Co's team included Partner Miglena Peneva and Attorney Maria Dereileva.
