Impact assessment for Guidelines for Good Practice for Gas Balancing

This report assesses the potential impact of making the ERGEG Guidelines for Good Practice for Gas Balancing (E07-GFG-17-04) binding. The report notes that the quantitative impact of making the GGPGB binding cannot be assessed in a straightforward manner because the Guidelines are quite flexible and do not set out explicit requirements for change. However, where possible potential costs could be incurred these are not expected to be significant in relation to the benefits that would be realised from a more efficient, effective and consistent balancing mechanisms across the EU.
