Date: 25 September 2009
The European Regulators Group for Electricity and Gas (ERGEG) in cooperation with Bundesnetzagentur and the Florence School of Regulation organised a Workshop on unbundling and corporate governance in the 3rd Package (25th September 2009).
The workshop was organised to present and discuss the practical impacts of implementing inter alia the Electricity Directive 2009/72/EC and the Gas Directive 2009/73/EC into national law, namely with regard to the implementation of ownership unbundling, the new Independent System Operator (ISO) and particularly the Independent Transmission Operator (ITO) models. In this respect, possible impacts on corporate governance rules - principally based on the 2004 OECD Corporate Governance Codex on the unbundling of energy utilities - have been highlighted.
