Malta – Energy

Short-term priorities:

Assessment (November 2003)

Please refer to the fact sheets on the adoption of the Community acquis.

Medium-term priorities:

  • preparation for the internal energy market, particularly the electricity and gas directives (including adaptation of energy prices to cost levels and the establishment of a regulatory authority);
  • alignment of national legislation (oil stock and energy efficiency requirements) on the acquis;
  • restructuring of Malta’s institutional structures to separate policy formulation and regulation and reinforcement of its capacity to implement the acquis.

Assessment (November 2001)

Malta has made limited progress in the fields of energy efficiency and the preparation of the internal energy market. Policy formation and regulation have been separated by creating a Maltese resource management authority. The priorities in this area have largely been respected.

Assessment (October 2002)

Malta has progressed with its preparations for the internal energy market, notably by implementing the Malta Resources Authority Act. However the Electricity Directive still needs to be transposed. Malta has taken legislative steps to improve energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources.

Assessment (November 2003)

Please refer to the fact sheets on the adoption of the Community acquis.

Following the signing of the Accession Treaty on 16 April 2003, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia acceded to the European Union on 1 May 2004.
