Why centralise the monitoring at the Agency?
Answer: Wholesale energy markets are becoming increasingly interlinked across the Union. NRAs typically see only a part of these markets. A centralised approach to market monitoring with a holistic view of the markets is therefore essential to ensure effective detection and deterrence of abusive market practices. In addition, a centralised data collection will help to avoid double reporting of market participants active in several Member States will instead provide the Agency with a complete set of data on the EU wholesale energy market.
