This CEER report (C20-RES-67-03) presents the current state of play on RES tendering schemes in Europe. It is an update of the 2018 CEER Report on Tendering Procedures for RES in Europe (C18-SD-63-03). It provides a comprehensive overview of the various competitive bidding procedures in place for determining the level of support for RES in CEER Member countries. Assessments of schemes in selected countries complement the report.

This document presents a progress report on regulatory frameworks for innovation in electricity infrastructure. It follows up on the conclusions of the Energy Infrastructure Forum 2019. The conclusions invited National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) to review their regulatory practice in light of the recommendations of a consultancy study on regulatory frameworks on innovation and security and supply and which agreed that regulatory frameworks are largely in place to allow projects contributing to security of supply to be implemented.

This paper provides insights on what the implications are for incentives, prerequisites and interactions among the involved parties with DSO access to and use of flexibility. The aim of the paper is to elaborate how flexibility can be made available and how market-based procurement procedures could be arranged at the distribution level, focusing on necessary preconditions and different methods giving an overview of most of the aspects to contemplate on a European level, taking into account the room for adaptation to national circumstances.

This document presents CEER’s conclusions on electricity distribution network tariffs within today’s electricity system and how they can support expected changes. Besides building upon CEER’s earlier work on tariff principles, this document goes further in considering different tariff types, including static and dynamic network tariffs. In addition, it considers how tariffs could support the energy transition – including the areas of interaction with the procurement of flexibility, storage and electric vehicles – and the impact of the Clean Energy for All Europeans package.

Ref. C19-EQS-101-03, 23 March 2020
This report provides an overview of power losses (transmission and distribution) in electrical grids – the levels of losses, how they are defined, calculated and valued across 35 European countries. It is packed with key quality data such as the amount of technical and non-technical losses, losses in transmission and distribution systems, and procurement of losses. It also includes case studies on the reduction of contact voltage losses in the UK and the treatment of power losses by e-distribuzione in Italy. Reducing power losses contributes to greater energy efficiency and security of supply and is an important goal, not least because the costs of power losses are often passed on to consumers. This report contains a set of recommendations for good practices that could be adopted so as to better benchmark and reduce technical and non-technical losses. CEER’s findings and recommendations are based on the results of a questionnaire sent to National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs).
