Interested stakeholders


Since the development of the first European grid connection codes in 2012, there have been important policy developments in decarbonising Europe’s energy and transport sectors.

The revisions of grid connection network codes are needed to update the existing regulatory framework to ensure Europe’s interconnected power system adapts to emerging trends, such as increasing number of electricity storage modules, electrical charging points for e-vehicles, or the proliferation of distributed energy resources.

In September 2022, the European Commission asked ACER to initiate the process of amending the existing European network codes. Since then, ACER has:

  • published a Policy Paper;

  • launched an initial public consultation to gather amendment proposals from stakeholders;

  • held workshops on different technical topics; and

  • developed concrete amendment proposals to the network codes for stakeholders' consultation.

Why we are consulting

ACER ran a Public Consultation to gather stakeholders’ views on concrete amendment proposals on two European electricity grid connection network codes:

Stakeholders could submit their comments separately, to one or both network codes.

The public consultation ran from 17 July to 25 September 2023.

Evaluation of responses

Evaluation of stakeholders’ responses will be published in due course of 2023, according to the amendment process.


Note: due to removal of personal data and to distinguish between ACER's amendments and stakeholders' proposals, ACER's changes were accepted to only display those made by the relevant stakeholders.
