ACER provides an opinion on the third update of the manual of procedures for ENTSO-E transparency platform

What is it about?

The EU Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) publishes today an opinion on the third update of the manual of procedures for the European Network System Operator for Electricity (ENTSO-E) transparency platform.

ENTSO-E submitted the request for opinion to ACER on 6 October 2021. The update concerns mostly the data related to the European Platforms for the exchange of electricity balancing services across the EU.

Overall, ACER finds the updated manual of procedures fulfils the requirements for the publication of the balancing data items and meets the objective of the Transparency Regulation, subject to the consideration of various recommendations included in the Opinion.
