Grid operators are obliged to connect renewable energy plants to their grids without discriminating against certain plant operators. They are also obliged to transmit electricity from renewable sources as a priority. In general, the grid operators are obliged to develop their grids on the request of a plant operator, if the connection of a plant to the grid requires the grid to be developed.

There are policies regarding training programmes for RES installers and on enhancing the development of RES-H infrastructure. Other policies for developing and using RES installations are not in place.
