Demand Connection (DCC)
Principal objectives and contents
Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/1388 establishing a network code on demand connection (Demand Connection Code, DCC) entered into force on 7 September 2016.
The DCC aims to establish harmonised rules for grid connection for demand facilities and distribution networks. This is to:

facilitate Union-wide trade in electricity;
ensure system security;
facilitate the integration of renewable energy sources; and increase competition, for the benefit of consumers
