Expert groups for input to framework guidelines (gas & electricity)
The European Energy Regulators have decided to set up informal "ad hoc" expert groups. The goal of these groups will be to provide expert support to the European Energy Regulators during the development of Input for Framework Guidelines.
The 3rd Package of European energy legislation envisages the development of European network codes. The European TSO organisations (ENTSO-E and ENTSO-G) will be responsible for drafting cross-border network codes based on the principles and objectives set out in the Framework Guidelines to be prepared by the European Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) in consultation with network users.
The European Energy Regulators have announced their intention to prepare input on Framework Guidelines in some priority areas during the interim period in which ACER will be established. In that regard, the European Energy Regulators have developed a process to be applied to the preparation of these inputs which foresees - where necessary - the set up of ad hoc expert groups.
