Article 30(5) of Regulation (EU) 2019/943, Article 59(2) of Regulation (EU) 2016/631 (NC RfG) and Article 76(2) of Regulation (EU) 2016/1447 (NC HVDC) provide a legal basis for the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (the Agency) to request ENTSO-E to provide the Agency with the information required to monitor the implementation of both NC RfG and NC HVDC. For this purpose, the Agency drew up a list of required information and submitted a request to ENTSO-E within 12 months of the entry into force of both NC RfG and NC HVDC, respectively.

In response to ACER’s requests to ENTSO-E, ENTSO-E has prepared summary tables for each Member State, clarifying the type of information that need to be collected by the TSOs and DSOs e.g. depending on the Type of generation that is connected to their systems as this is defined by the national implementation of Article 5 of the NC RfG. The information will then be aggregated by the TSOs, submitted to ENTSO-E that needs to consequently collate and deliver it to ACER by June 30th each year.

The attached letter has been prepared to support the communication to all responsible parties i.e. competent regulatory authority, DSOs and TSOs and transparently show the type of data that are requested.

ENTSO-E should receive all inputs by April 30th of each year and each Member State can organise the collection of information at will.
