Since 2011, considerable effort has been devoted to the development of the Network Codes. The involvement of stakeholders such as consumer organisations, generators, suppliers and many others from across the European electricity sector has in particular been key to the successful adoption of an efficient set of Network Codes.

The drafting and approval of NCs is however just the start. The NCs have been designed to help realise Europe’s triple energy policy objective of developing a reliable, sustainable and competitive electricity sector. For this to happen, they need to be implemented and complied with across Europe.

This represents an important challenge for the sector with each NC requiring a series of steps to be taken, before being considered as fully implemented. This process will include amongst other things:

  • cross-national and national decisions,
  • the conclusion of regional agreements,
  • the creation of European-level common detailed methodologies and their actual (coordinated) application.

All market participants, grid users, DSOs, Nominated Electricity Market Operators (NEMOs), Transmission System Operators (TSOs) and National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) will be involved in the extensive required development work and consultation.

Effective stakeholder engagement is essential to the overall success of the overall objectives. In practice, this involves efficient and intensive sharing of views and information by all interested parties throughout the process as a whole.

The European Network Codes Stakeholder Committees, chaired by ACER, will insure that throughout the implementation program, stakeholders are kept abreast of developments and provided with a forum to express their views and feedback.

About the committees

ACER and ENTSO-E will co-organise three European Stakeholder Committees (ESCs), one per family of codes (Market codes, Operational codes and Connection codes). These Committees aim to complement, and not to replace, the legal obligations of stakeholder consultation and information included in the NCs during the implementation period.

Following the entry into force of the first market Network Code in August 2015, the Market stakeholder committee is the first one to be formally established. The connection and operations committees will be set up after the first codes enter into force.

In order to establish an efficient structure, which delivers on all stakeholders expectations, ACER and ENTSO-E organised a public consultation in 2015. Over 30 stakeholder organisations responded to the consultation. Subsequently, ACER and ENTSO-E jointly proposed a set of rules for the stakeholder committees, which will be approved by stakeholders themselves on their first meeting.

Objectives

The main objectives of the ESCs are:

  1. To contribute to monitoring progress in the NCs implementation process – as well as the operation and functioning of the processes and arrangements established according to the NCs – at local, regional and pan-European level as an overarching structure of all network codes;
  2. To serve as a platform to share general views on the NC implementation, with a particular focus to enable stakeholders to express their views and receive feedback;
  3. To contribute to a more informed decision-making process for the methodologies and rules still to be developed for the implementation of the NCs.
