Yesterday on the 16th of April 2013 Holtrop S.L.P. announced before the Spanish administrative tribunal, the Audiencia Nacional, its appeal against the Orden Ministerial IET221/2013 which develops the Royal Decree-Law 2/2013 freezing the yearly update of the Consumer Index Price (CPI) for the feed-in tariffs to renewable energy installations. 

Our appeal is based on the legal ground of retroactivity, since the cutback is effective from the 1st of January 2013 while the Royal Decree-Law 2/2013 actually entered into force on the 2nd of February. The infringement of EU law, in particular the Directive 2009/28/CE on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources and the established doctrine of the Tribunal of Justice of the European Union are the main grounds of law.
