On 5 December 2023, the Bidding Zone Review Consultative Group (BZR CG) held the 7th formal meeting since the launch of the BZR study, in the form of an online event.

The BZR CG serves as a platform for relevant stakeholders to interact with ENTSOE and its members on achieving the objectives of the BZR and is composed of representatives from 17 stakeholders, including: European market parties’ associations, national market parties’ associations from BZs of active Bidding Zone Review Regions (BZRRs), as well as European research institutes and think-tanks.

This time, the focus of the meeting was for the TSOs to present the latest updates on the pan-European studies on transition costs and market liquidity and transaction costs, as well as the public consultation. The TSOs also used the opportunity to present the status update of both BZRRs.

TSOs and ENTSO-E see a great added value in having BZR CG meetings and will continue the close cooperation with ACER, NRAs and BZR CG members at technical and strategic level.
