ACER, ECS consult on non-EU border points
EU regulator ACER and the Energy Community Secretariat (ECS) have started a joint consultation on gas transport capacity at interconnection points with some non-EU countries, the two organisations said on May 12.
The consultation "aims at reaching a better understanding of market needs, approaches to avoiding network interruptions, and optimising capacity availability," ACER and the ECS said. The goal is to "benefit market integration, competition and ultimately gas consumers."
The border points are shared with Ukraine, Moldova, Serbia, North Macedonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. As members of the Energy Community, the countries are required to align their energy policies with those of the EU.
Interested parties have until June 30 to provide responses to the consultation. ACER and the ECS will analyse these responses and evaluate them in a summary.
