ACER’s views on gas congestion indicators published


Following a recent survey on the indicators for contractual congestion at gas interconnection points (IPs), ACER has now published its views on the stakeholders’ responses.     

As a consequence, the Agency will now consider preparing a recommendation to the Commission for a possible amendment of the Guidelines on Congestion Management Procedures (CMPs). The main focus is on:    

- the reconsideration of the ‘automatic’ application of the Firm Day-Ahead Use-It-Or-Lose-It mechanism at congested IPs; and
- the enhancement of the congestion analysis/evaluation by including additional elements. 

The summary and evaluation of responses is available here​.
