WindEurope suggested amendments to F-gas regulation

WindEurope welcomes the European Commission’s proposal on a new regulation on fluorinated greenhouse gases that will ensure the gradual phase-out of SF6 in electrical switchgear. But the proposed SF6 phase-out must be done on a timely and realistic manner to ensure the supply chain can scale up production of all necessary SF6-free solutions.

The phase-out of SF6 must also not undermine the safe operation of existing grid infrastructure. Retroactive measures will reduce the safety and reliability of the power grid, create additional supply bottlenecks, and slow down the deployment and connection of new wind farms.

We therefore recommend policymakers to amend the proposed F-gas regulation by:
