Members of the EU Parliament visit ACER

A delegation from the European Parliament’s Committee for Transport, Research and Energy (ITRE) visited ACER’s headquarters yesterday in Ljubljana. The delegation discussed the Agency’s work towards a single, well-functioning and transparent energy market in Europe.         

The delegation was led by Mr Morten Helveg Petersen, MEP, from the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats (ALDE) and Vice Chair of the ITRE Committee and also included Mr Miroslav Poche, MEP, from the Socialists and Democrats.  

The discussions focused on the implementation of the network codes and guidelines in the gas and electricity sectors, the Clean Energy Package proposals, the Energy Infrastructure Package, and the implementation of REMIT (Wholesale energy market integrity and transparency).         

The ITRE Committee delegation also held a joint session with ACER’s Administrative Board.        

At the meeting, Alberto Pototschnig, Director of the Agency, expressed his appreciation and gratitude for the continued support of the European Parliament, and of the ITRE Committee in particular, to the Agency over these years.
