What is it about?

In the context of the ongoing revisions of the European grid connection network codes, ACER will consult with stakeholders (during summer 2024) to collect views on ACER’s concrete amendment proposals to the network code on grid connection requirements for high voltage direct current systems and related power park modules (NC HVDC).

The revisions to the NC HVDC aim to:

  • Enhance the existing grid connection regulatory framework.
  • Align the code with the network codes on requirements for grid connection of generators and on demand connection.
  • Ensure the interconnected system is adapted to emerging trends, such as the increasing generation capacity of offshore networks (AC hubs) and the connection of new system users (storage, demand facilities).

Event objective

With this webinar ACER will:

  • present ACER’s proposed amendments to the grid connection network code;
  • provide any necessary clarifications on the purpose, process and timeline for the amendments; and
  • inform stakeholders on how they can comment on these amendments through their participation in the public consultation.

What are the next steps?

ACER invites stakeholders to contribute to its public consultation, running from 17 June until 8 September 2024.

ACER will submit its NC HVDC amendment proposal to the European Commission by the end of 2024.
