This document seeks to analyse the regulatory implications of new and developing practices, such as self-consumption, Citizen Energy Communities and Renewable Energy Communities. CEER developed a regulatory approach to analyse these developments in the energy market. The analysis is based on several case studies submitted by NRAs. The document will serve as both an overview of ongoing developments in the respective Member States and also address regulatory challenges at an early stage, to enable innovation whilst ensuring that consumers benefit from these new practices.

This Status Review on the Implementation of Transmission and Distribution System Operators’ Unbundling Provisions of the 3rd Energy Package focuses on new developments since summer 2015. It also briefly summarises the main changes and novelties with regard to unbundling-related provisions that were made in the recasts of the Electricity Directive and Electricity Regulation within the framework of “Clean Energy for All Europeans” package (CEP).

This CEER note explains the findings of a CEER questionnaire to National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) of the EU and EEA Member States, namely that NRAs have no national rules on establishing AMPs in the energy sector, have not established any AMP under REMIT and do not plan to do so.

Ref. C18-DS-46-08, 22 March 2019
This paper aims to contribute to provide clarity on energy regulators’ positions regarding system services in the fields of energy storage, direct consumer services, data management, and services outside of the energy sector. The paper concludes that, as neutral market facilitators, distribution system operators are vital in facilitating these developments, but at the same time they should typically not crowd-out the provision of these services by the competitive marketplace. A stakeholder roundtable contributed input to this paper.

CEER has developed a 3-year, “3D” regulatory policy strategy for the period 2019-2021.
The 3 pillars of CEER’s “3D Strategy” are:

- Digitalisation in the consumer interest (D1);
- Decarbonisation at least cost (D2); and
- Dynamic regulation (D3).

Regulators primary concern is with the public interest. Hence, consumers are at the core of CEER’s 3D Strategy (and of our digitalisation focus therein). The dynamic regulation element of our strategy is about regulation adapting to market developments and anticipating future requirements.

Our strategy provides a strong basis to build our future work. It is being delivered from 2019-2021 through our annual Work Programmes
- CEER 2019 Work Programme – the first year of this 3-year strategy
- CEER Draft 2020 Work Programme (for public consultation from 14 June until 9 August 2019)

Each annual CEER work programme clearly sets out the “D” (digitalisation; decarbonisation at least cost; and dynamic regulation) to which each work item contributes. CEER's 3D Strategy and Implementation of the Clean Energy Package are the 2 drivers of our 2019-2021 Work Programmes.

Our 3D Strategy was developed in consultation with stakeholders. See the Evaluation of Responses.

The values which frame CEER’s culture are: Cooperation; Evidence; Expertise; and Respect.
