ACER organises consultation & workshop on transparency in European gas markets

As the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) explains, transparency is a vital element for ensuring effective third party access and overall functioning of a competitive internal gas market. Regulation (EC) No 715/2009 includes a number of transparency requirements, going beyond those foreseen in the previous legislation. ACER is now examining the level of compliance of TSOs against these gas transparency requirements. In order to complete the public consultation process, ACER launched on 31 July a public consultation on Transparency in Gas Markets and is seeking stakeholder views on the TSO responses to the transparency questionnaire from the remaining countries, i.e. those which are not included in the North West and South gas Regions. A public workshop on Transparency in Gas Markets will be held in ACER premises in Ljubljana on September 13th 2012, in order to allow TSOs, NRAs and other stakeholders to express their views and provide their feedback to ACER before the final results are presented in the 22nd Madrid Forum in October 2012. TSOs, NRAs and stakeholders from all Member States, including the North West and South regions, are welcome to participate.
