An holistic approach to innovation

​​​​Research, development and innovation could not be effective without the involvement of distribution and transmission system operators. To ensure an effective and inclusive energy transition, every stakeholder must play a role.

Cross border cooperation and knowledge sharing facilitate the efficient functioning of both the interconnected system and the internal energy market, making the cooperation of sector associations at European level a welcome approach. ​

What does ACER say?

​Research, development and innovation activities, if conducted by regulated entities, require a clear assessment of their foreseen costs and bene​​​​fits. ACER acknowledges that a CBA is difficult to conduct for such activities, but this fact should not defer regulated entities to establish project benefits in order to prove its benefit to the consumer. In this respect, the same level of transparency is required of such projects as of any other infrastructure project. ​
