Order No. 565 on authorizing the establishment and modification of power generation plants.

Type of law

The Danish Energy Agency regulates and authorizes the application for the establishment or/and the amending of energy-production plants. The goal of this Order is to ensure that standard control of pollution (hereby waste, emissions such as CO2, CH4, N2O, and other pollutants) is taken in consideration and that environmental damages are controlled (techniques and methods) when approving for such energy-production activities. Scrapping of energy-production plants shall only occur following authorization from the Danish Energy Agency if their power generation is of 25 MW or more (art. 14).
The Order consists of 9 Chapters and 1 Appendix: Scope and definitions (1); Application contents (2); Conditions for the authorization of electricity production plant (3); Conditions for the authorization of scrapping existing plants (4); Exemptions (5); Central power and heat and power generation plants (6); Licence terms and conditions (7); Appeals and penalties (8); Entry into force (9).
