ACER launches today in close collaboration with ENTSO-E, a call for interest to all interested EU wide electricity associations to participate in the Grid Connection European Stakeholder Committee (the Grid Connection ESC). The Grid Connection ESC will be set up as the second out of three ESCs ensuring effective engagement of stakeholders in the Network Code Implementation process.
ACER invites you to the 11th Public Workshop on REMIT implementation which will take place on 16 February in Ljubljana. Among the items to be presented and discussed at the workshop: the registration of Registered Reporting Mechanisms (RRMs), REMIT transaction reporting as of 7 April 2016 and the way forward.
Regulation (EU) No 347/2013 introduced cross-border cost allocation (CBCA) as an improved regulatory tool to facilitate the implementation of projects of common interest (PCIs), taking into account the distribution of costs and benefits across borders.
On 18 December the Agency issued its Recommendation No 05/2015 to help project promoters and National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) in future cross-border cost allocation procedures and to facilitate a consistent EU-wide approach for CBCA cases by sharing good practices. Recommendation 05/2015 is accompanied by a summary report of CBCA decisions taken till September 2015.
In this context, on 2 February 2016 the Agency will hold a public workshop at its premises in Ljubljana. All interested stakeholders are invited to participate.
Data reporting under the EU Regulation on wholesale energy market integrity and transparency (REMIT) has exceeded all expectations, with more than 1 million data records submitted to the Agency daily since 7 October 2015.
On 18 December 2015, the Agency adopted a new Recommendation regarding good practices for the treatment of the investment requests including cross border cost allocation (CBCA) requests for electricity and gas projects of common interest (PCI). This Recommendation aims to facilitate future CBCA processes and to provide guidelines to and share good practices with project promoters and NRAs. It replaces the Agency’s Recommendation No 07/2013 on CBCA.
As of today, the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) is making available to stakeholders, interested parties and the general public a feedback tool included in ACER opinions, recommendations and publications, which next year will be available in all ACER documents. You will be able to rate our deliverables in terms of relevance and quality, and share your views with us, so we can take them on board for the preparation of future documents and publications.
