What is it about?
From 12 December 2014 to 23 January 2014 the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) together with the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) is running a public consultation on on the role of stakeholders in the implementation of network codes and related guidelines, and on the establishment of European Network Code Stakeholder Committees.
The Agency and ENTSO-E invite all interested parties to submit their comments on the consultation document on the Role of stakeholders in the implementation of network codes and related guidelines, and in particular on the establishment of European Network Code Stakeholder Committees.
Responses to the consultation must be sent to
firstname.lastname@example.org 23 January midnight, Central European Time.
Network codes were developed with a view to achieve Europe’s key energy policy goals of security of supply, competitive internal energy market (IEM) and decarbonisation. This is why network codes need to be implemented and complied with throughout the European Union.
All market participants, Distribution System Operators (DSOs), Nominated Electricity Market Operators (NEMOs), Transmission System Operators (TSOs) and regulators will be involved. The implementation of network codes will be work intensive. Strong, continuous and effective stakeholder engagement is key for the successful implementation of network codes. This is why extensive consultation needs to be organised throughout the implementation phase.
With the draft guideline on capacity allocation and congestion management (CACM), adopted by Member States in comitology on 5 December 2014, the European Commission tasked ACER, in close collaboration with ENTSO-E, to establish a stakeholder committee to facilitate discussion with stakeholders during the implementation phase of the different network codes.
