CEER Short paper on the ownership of Storage Facilities in the Electrical Distribution System

This document seeks to outline a stepwise guide on the tendering procedure and the derogation granting process pursuant to paragraph (2) of article 36 of the (EU) 2019/944 Electricity Directive wherein it is provided under which circumstances are DSOs – otherwise prohibited of doing so – allowed to own, develop, operate or manage electricity storage facilities. For this purpose, the drafting team also gathered information on the national implementation of this article.
