ACER organises a workshop on disruption of gas supply and the value of lost load in power supply systems


​On 18 June the Agency will hold a workshop in Brussels on the estimation of the cost of disruption of gas supply (CoDG) and the value of lost load in power supply systems (VoLL) in Europe. The purpose is to develop methodologies which allow the evaluation of CoDG and VoLL in monetary terms per EU Member State per type of consumer or, if not feasible per Member State, at regional level. For that purpose, ACER has contracted studies on the matter, which will be discussed during the workshop.

The studies are expected to provide practical results which can be used in the context of updating and improving the gas and electricity cost-benefit analysis (CBA) methodologies in line with the EU Regulation for trans-European energy infrastructure. The current CBA methodologies were developed by the European Network of Transmission System Operators (ENTSOG and ENTSO-E) in the context of assessment of new infrastructure, as well as in the context of the regulation concerning measures to safeguard the security of gas supply (SoS Regulation). In particular, both studies are expected to provide estimates of CoDG and VoLL to be used for a better monetisation of security of supply aspects in the CBA methodologies (and in the SoS Regulation concerning gas security of supply).

As the premises on which the workshop is to take place have limited seating capacity, participation will be allotted on a first come, first served basis until the seating capacity is fully booked. A real-time webcast of the workshop will be provided.

Related to the CoDG study, the Agency invites Industrial and Power Sector users of natural gas in the production process or as a fuel to complete until 12 June 2018 an Image removed.online Questionnaire​ developed by the consultant contracted by the Agency.
