CEER publishes Status review on TSO and DSO unbundling

Today, CEER publishes its Status Review on the Implementation of TSO and DSO Unbundling Provisions & “Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas Markets Package” Outlook.

The report assesses the status of DSO and TSO unbundling, highlighting new developments since 2018 regarding the implementation of the rules introduced by the Clean Energy Package. Additionally, it offers a brief outlook of the main novelties in unbundling-related provisions emerging under the recently agreed Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas Market Package.

Key findings show that:

  • Since 2018, there were 14 cases in eight countries dealing either with new TSO certification decisions or the reopening of existing certifications.
  • The number of DSOs in Europe has not substantially changed.
  • There were only three cases of TSOs changing their unbundling models – from Independent Transmission Operator (ITO) to Ownership Unbundling (OU).
  • More than half of the NRAs notified ongoing hydrogen projects in which TSOs are involved within their Member State, with some cross-border H2 infrastructure projects also being set up.
  • Austria, Belgium, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain, Greece and the Netherlands have active, registered Citizen Energy Communities.
