What is the event about?



The European Union Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) invites you to register for an online webinar on 20 May 2021 to present the results of the methodological study aimed at identifying and measuring barriers to the development of competitive electricity prices and the entry and participation of new market players in the EU electricity wholesale markets.

The study – which has been carried out with the support of a consultant over the last nine months – will enable ACER to fulfil effectively its new monitoring responsibilities set in the Clean Energy Package. In particular, the study has defined some indicators to be progressively included in future editions of ACER's Annual Report on the Results of Monitoring the Internal Electricity and Natural Gas Markets consisting of three volumes focusing on the Electricity Wholesale Market, the Gas Wholesale Market, Retail Markets and Consumer Protection.

This webinar will present:

  • The main barriers identified to the development of competitive electricity prices and the entry and participation of new market players

  • The ind​icators to measure these barriers

  • ​The methodology to combine the selected indicators

Based on this methodology, ACER aims to provide a comprehensive picture of the relative performance of the Member States concerning both efficient price formation and easy market entry and participation for new market players.
