The European Commission has approved under EU State aid rules (1) a Polish scheme to support high-efficiency cogeneration and (2) reduced surcharges to finance the scheme for energy-intensive users. It also (3) opened an investigation into reduced surcharges to finance Poland's capacity mechanism. With respect to the (1) support to high-efficiency cogeneration, the scheme, with an annual budget of €500 million will support combined heat and power (“CHP”) installations connected to district heating networks in Poland. The highly efficient CHP installations benefitting from the scheme will receive support through a premiumon top of the market price. The Commission assessed the scheme under EU State aid rules, in particular the Commission's 2014 Guidelines on State Aid for Environmental Protection and Energy and concluded that the scheme will support the production of electricity from high-efficiency cogeneration and lead to a better integration of cogenerated power into the electricity market, in line with EU environmental and climate objectives, without unduly distorting competition in the Single Market. The Polish cogeneration support scheme approved today is financed through a (2) surcharge levied on final electricity consumers, based on their electricity consumption. Poland has also notified to the Commission plans to lower the financial burden on certain energy-intensive users (“EIUs”), which would benefit from a reduced CHP surcharge. The Commission found that the proposed reductions in surcharges for energy-intensive users are in line with EU State aid rules. In February 2018 , the Commission approved under EU State aid rules an electricity capacity mechanism in Poland. Poland now plans to (3) introduce reductions for certain energy intensive users on a surcharge levied on electricity consumers to finance the Polish capacity mechanism. The Commission has opened an in-depth investigation to further assess whether these proposed reductions are compatible with EU State aid rules. The Commission will now investigate further to determine whether its initial concerns are confirmed. Commissioner Margrethe Vestager , in charge of competition policy, said : “The Polish support scheme approved today will provide an important contribution to EU environmental and climate goals without unduly distorting competition. We have also approved Polish plans to preserve the competitiveness of energy-intensive companies in Poland by reducing their contributions to the financing of the electricity cogeneration support. But we still need to assess if the reductions for certain users on the surcharge that finances the Polish capacity mechanism are in line with our State aid rules. A full press release is available in (For more information: Ricardo Cardoso Tel.: +32 229 80100; Giulia Astuti - Tel.: +32 229 55344) State aid: Commission approves € 54 million support for a waste-to-energy highly efficient cogeneration plant in Poland. The European Commission has approved, under EU State aid rules, Polish plans to support the construction of a highly efficient waste-to-energy cogeneration plant located in Olsztyn. The beneficiary of the aid is Miejskie Przedsiębiorstwo Energetyki Cieplnej Sp. z o.o. (“MPEC”), a municipally owned company. The project will be organised in the form of a public-private partnership between MPEC and a private partner selected by the beneficiary through a competitive procedure. The Commission assessed the measure under EU State aid rules, in particular the Commission's 2014 Guidelines on State aid for environmental protection and energy . The Commission found that the aid will contribute to the EU's energy and environmental objectives without unduly distorting competition in the Single Market. In particular, cogeneration increases energy efficiency by recycling the heat from power generation for other uses (in this case, the public district heating), to the overall benefit of the environment. The new installation will also help reduce municipal waste disposal in landfills by incinerating approximately 100.000 tonnes of waste that is currently landfilled. More information will be available on the Commission under the case number SA.51614. (For more information: Ricardo Cardoso Tel.: +32 229 80100; Giulia Astuti - Tel.: +32 229 55344) State aid: Commission approves Irish scheme for renewable heat generation. The European Commission has approved, under EU State aid rules, an Irish scheme to support the generation of heat from two renewable technologies: biomass and anaerobic digestion. The scheme is open to a wide range of heat users, namely commercial, industrial, agricultural, district heating and other non-domestic heat users. Beneficiaries will receive operating aid in the form of a payment for the useful renewable heat generated over 15 years. The Commission assessed the measure under EU State aid rules, in particular the Commission's 2014 Guidelines on State aid for environmental protection and energy . It found that the scheme is proportionate as the payments granted to beneficiaries will not lead to overcompensation. The Commission concluded that the scheme will contribute to the EU's energy and environmental objectives without unduly distorting competition. More information will be available on the Commission's under the case number SA.50807.

The European Commission has approved, under the EU Merger Regulation, the proposed acquisition by Nidec of Embraco, Whirlpool's refrigeration compressor business. Today's decision follows an in-depth review of the proposed transaction. The Commission had concerns that the transaction as notified would have reduced competition and resulted in higher prices and less choice in the markets for: (i) fixed speed refrigeration compressors for light commercial applications; (ii) variable speed refrigeration compressors for light commercial applications; (iii) variable speed refrigeration compressors for household applications. Nidec decided to address the concerns by proposing a set of commitments. In particular, Nidec offered to divest its refrigeration compressor business for both household and light commercial applications. This includes plants in Austria, Slovakia and China and removes the entire overlap between Nidec and Embraco in the markets where the Commission had identified competition concerns. Nidec also committed to make available to the purchaser of the divestment business significant funding, which is dedicated to investments in production lines in Nidec's plants in Austria and Slovakia. Therefore, the Commission concluded that the proposed transaction, as modified by the commitments, would no longer raise competition concerns in the EEA and worldwide. The Commission's decision is conditional on full compliance with the commitments. Commissioner Margrethe Vestager , in charge of competition policy, said: " External link

The European Commission has approved under EU State aid rules (1) a Polish scheme to support high-efficiency cogeneration and (2) reduced surcharges to finance the scheme for energy-intensive users. It also (3) opened an investigation into reduced surcharges to finance Poland's capacity mechanism. With respect to the (1) support to high-efficiency cogeneration, the scheme, with an annual budget of €500 million will support combined heat and power (“CHP”) installations connected to district heating networks in Poland. The highly efficient CHP installations benefitting from the scheme will receive support through a premiumon top of the market price. The Commission assessed the scheme under EU State aid rules, in particular the Commission's 2014 Guidelines on State Aid for Environmental Protection and Energy and concluded that the scheme will support the production of electricity from high-efficiency cogeneration and lead to a better integration of cogenerated power into the electricity market, in line with EU environmental and climate objectives, without unduly distorting competition in the Single Market. The Polish cogeneration support scheme approved today is financed through a (2) surcharge levied on final electricity consumers, based on their electricity consumption. Poland has also notified to the Commission plans to lower the financial burden on certain energy-intensive users (“EIUs”), which would benefit from a reduced CHP surcharge. The Commission found that the proposed reductions in surcharges for energy-intensive users are in line with EU State aid rules. In February 2018 , the Commission approved under EU State aid rules an electricity capacity mechanism in Poland. Poland now plans to (3) introduce reductions for certain energy intensive users on a surcharge levied on electricity consumers to finance the Polish capacity mechanism. The Commission has opened an in-depth investigation to further assess whether these proposed reductions are compatible with EU State aid rules. The Commission will now investigate further to determine whether its initial concerns are confirmed. Commissioner Margrethe Vestager , in charge of competition policy, said : “The Polish support scheme approved today will provide an important contribution to EU environmental and climate goals without unduly distorting competition. We have also approved Polish plans to preserve the competitiveness of energy-intensive companies in Poland by reducing their contributions to the financing of the electricity cogeneration support. But we still need to assess if the reductions for certain users on the surcharge that finances the Polish capacity mechanism are in line with our State aid rules. A full press release is available in (For more information: Ricardo Cardoso Tel.: +32 229 80100; Giulia Astuti - Tel.: +32 229 55344) State aid: Commission approves € 54 million support for a waste-to-energy highly efficient cogeneration plant in Poland. The European Commission has approved, under EU State aid rules, Polish plans to support the construction of a highly efficient waste-to-energy cogeneration plant located in Olsztyn. The beneficiary of the aid is Miejskie Przedsiębiorstwo Energetyki Cieplnej Sp. z o.o. (“MPEC”), a municipally owned company. The project will be organised in the form of a public-private partnership between MPEC and a private partner selected by the beneficiary through a competitive procedure. The Commission assessed the measure under EU State aid rules, in particular the Commission's 2014 Guidelines on State aid for environmental protection and energy . The Commission found that the aid will contribute to the EU's energy and environmental objectives without unduly distorting competition in the Single Market. In particular, cogeneration increases energy efficiency by recycling the heat from power generation for other uses (in this case, the public district heating), to the overall benefit of the environment. The new installation will also help reduce municipal waste disposal in landfills by incinerating approximately 100.000 tonnes of waste that is currently landfilled. More information will be available on the Commission under the case number SA.51614. (For more information: Ricardo Cardoso Tel.: +32 229 80100; Giulia Astuti - Tel.: +32 229 55344) State aid: Commission approves Irish scheme for renewable heat generation. The European Commission has approved, under EU State aid rules, an Irish scheme to support the generation of heat from two renewable technologies: biomass and anaerobic digestion. The scheme is open to a wide range of heat users, namely commercial, industrial, agricultural, district heating and other non-domestic heat users. Beneficiaries will receive operating aid in the form of a payment for the useful renewable heat generated over 15 years. The Commission assessed the measure under EU State aid rules, in particular the Commission's 2014 Guidelines on State aid for environmental protection and energy . It found that the scheme is proportionate as the payments granted to beneficiaries will not lead to overcompensation. The Commission concluded that the scheme will contribute to the EU's energy and environmental objectives without unduly distorting competition. More information will be available on the Commission's under the case number SA.50807.

The European Commission has approved, under the EU Merger Regulation, the proposed acquisition by Nidec of Embraco, Whirlpool's refrigeration compressor business. Today's decision follows an in-depth review of the proposed transaction. The Commission had concerns that the transaction as notified would have reduced competition and resulted in higher prices and less choice in the markets for: (i) fixed speed refrigeration compressors for light commercial applications; (ii) variable speed refrigeration compressors for light commercial applications; (iii) variable speed refrigeration compressors for household applications. Nidec decided to address the concerns by proposing a set of commitments. In particular, Nidec offered to divest its refrigeration compressor business for both household and light commercial applications. This includes plants in Austria, Slovakia and China and removes the entire overlap between Nidec and Embraco in the markets where the Commission had identified competition concerns. Nidec also committed to make available to the purchaser of the divestment business significant funding, which is dedicated to investments in production lines in Nidec's plants in Austria and Slovakia. Therefore, the Commission concluded that the proposed transaction, as modified by the commitments, would no longer raise competition concerns in the EEA and worldwide. The Commission's decision is conditional on full compliance with the commitments. Commissioner Margrethe Vestager , in charge of competition policy, said: " External link
