Consultation on risk preparedness regulation


The European Parliament adopted the “Clean Energy for All Europeans Package” (CEP) on 26 March 2019, which was then formally approved by the relevant EU ministers. On 4 July, the CEP finally came into force, introducing new laws on EU electricity trading, including the “Regulation 2019/941 on risk-preparedness in the electricity sector”. This Regulation requires the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) to develop the methodology to identify regional scenarios for electricity crises within six months of its implementation.

ENTSO-E has now prepared proposals for the “Methodology for identification of electricity crisis scenarios at a regional level” and the “Methodology for short term and seasonal adequacy assessment”. In order to receive input from stakeholders, ENTSO-E has launched a public consultation on these methodology propositions. The consultation is open until 8 October 2019 and ENTSO-E will also host a webinar on the risk preparedness methodologies on 5 September from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.

EU regulation seals regional coordination


ENTSO-E, the European Network of Transmission System Operators (TSOs) for Electricity, comments on the new EU regulation on power system operation (“Commission regulation establishing a guideline on electricity transmission system operation”, one of Europe’s eight electricity network codes). The regulation coming into force in all EU member states mid-September “formalises” the ongoing strategy based on Regional Security Coordinators (RSCs) launched by TSOs to strengthen security of supply with more and more renewables.

ENTSO-E announced to “step up its digital agenda as a lot of IT development is needed to implement the guideline on system operation as well as the other network codes”. In this regard, the Brussels-based organisation launches a new series of conferences on electricity regional coordination together with one of the RSCs: The Conference on Electricity Security Coordination (ElSeC) on the 17th of October in Munich, Germany, hosted by TSCNET Services.
