ACER opens a public consultation on the influence of existing bidding zones on electricity markets
The consultation launched by ACER today on the influence of existing bidding zones on electricity markets originates from the on-going discussions among National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) and the Agency about the appropriateness of existing bidding zones to achieve a well-functioning electricity market in Europe. This has resulted in a joint initiative of ACER and ENTSO-E to perform a review of existing bidding zones based on the process defined in the draft Network Code on Capacity Allocation and Congestion Management (CACM). The stakeholders are invited to provide their views on how the existing bidding zones influence the functioning of electricity markets and to respond to consultation questions by 30 September 2013.
