vs.
The Energy Board of Appeal

Decisions on the duty to stay connected to a local CHP plant were justified

The case concerned whether the Municipality of Randers had rightly ordered the appellants to stay connected to the CHP plant Uggelhuse Langkastrup Kraftvarmeværk AmbA, and whether the Energy Board of Appeal had rightly upheld this decision.

The Supreme Court held, among other things, that the decisions of the Energy Board of Appeal fulfilled the justification requirements, and that the Municipality's decision on the obligation to stay connected to the plant had not been made with retrospective effect, as the appellants' notices of termination had not taken effect when this decision was made. A new allegation before the Supreme Court to the effect that the appellants should have been exempted from the obligation to stay connected because they had wood burners was rejected due to inactivity, as it was no longer possible to collect sufficient evidence in the case.

Consequently, the Supreme Court found for the Municipality of Randers and the Energy Board of Appeal.

The High Court had reached the same conclusion.
