CEER-ACER Workshop on Gas Incremental Capacity
 Monday, 3 June 2013, Diamant Conference & Business centre, Bd. A. Reyerslaan 80, Brussels 1030, Belgium (Conference room: Archimedes)

Background Information

The Council of the European Energy Regulators (CEER) together with the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) have organised the workshop on gas incremental capacity.

The workshop took place on Monday, 3 June 2013 in Brussels at Diamant Conference and Business centre.

The CEER Gas Target Model, published in 2011, concluded that further work needs to be done on the identification and allocation of incremental capacity. The 22nd Madrid Forum (October 2012) invited regulators to develop – in close cooperation with stakeholders – the blueprint on how ‘new build’ capacity at interconnection points can be integrated into an EU-wide market-based approach, as well as on further considerations for large new infrastructure projects.

This joint workshop provided the platform for a comprehensive discussion of the CEER Blueprint and stakeholder feedback. The CEER Blueprint can be found here.

Speakers included high-level representatives from the European Commission, energy regulators and industry.

Documents of the workshop: the draft agenda of the workshop, presentations used at the workshop,  the CEER Blueprint on Incremental capacity and the Report of Frontier Economics prepared for ACER on Impact assessment of policy options on incremental capacity for EU gas transmission are available at this page under tab Agenda, presentations and Other Documents.
