The CBCA is a powerful tool, but it can become a complex process that involves many parties, and it must be carefully managed to keep it as simple as possible. As a matter of fact, it may produce counterproductive effects, slowing rather than fostering investments, adding bureaucracy, multiple and sterile cross-invoicing of TSOs across Europe and damaging the good cooperative spirit among project promoters, NRAs and Member States in developing transmission infrastructure. ENTSO-E believes it is important to streamline the process from the very beginning to achieve effective and coherent CBCA decisions.
In this document, ENTSO-E provides several recommendations with the intention of increasing support by all affected parties for the outcomes of cases in which CBCA is applied. else recommendations are addressed to project promoters, national regulatory authorities, Member States, ACER and all project stakeholders.
