Gas Working Group (GWG)


The Gas Working Group is responsible for addressing issues related to the European gas transmission systems and the EU gas market. It helps foster discussions between European energy regulators to share best practice and expertise on the various gas related issues. The GWG cooperates closely with European stakeholders (European Institutions, industry actors, academia etc.) to promote an efficient and well-functioning gas market. Furthermore, the GWG cooperates with the other CEER WGs on a range of issues in addition to supporting the tasks and activities of ACER.
The work to be delivered in 2024 includes the following:

  • Accompanying the Hydrogen and Gas Market Decarbonisation Package along the legislative process;
  • A paper on the regulatory pathways for long term energy storage;
  • How to implement the Gas Package in relation to regulation of hydrogen and biomethane; and
  • A paper on the role of LNG in the new energy market.

The GWG is made up of four work streams dealing with relevant topics for European gas issues, in addition to two network of experts which provide expertise on specific issues:

  • Regulatory Gas Strategy (RGS)
  • Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)
  • Gas Decarbonisation Legislation (GDL)
  • Gas Infrastructure (GI)
  • Gas Storage Network of Experts
  • Gas Security of Supply Network of Experts
