Hungary links transmission tariff discounts to battery storage investments

The Hungarian Energy and Public Utility Regulatory Authority (MEKH) has amended a decree on transmission tariffs to allow non-household consumers of electricity discounts for installing battery storage, the regulator said on Thursday.

Non-household consumers that install at least 0.5 MW of battery storage capacity after January 1, 2024 will be eligible for the transmission tariff discounts in effect until the end of 2026, MEKH said.

MEKH will publish the scale of the discounts annually, in a resolution on transmission tariffs.

The amendment aims to promote investments which contribute to increasing the flexibility of the electricity system and thereby to the integration of renewable producers by expanding electricity storage capacities, the authority said in a statement.
