ENTSO-E Annual Work Programme

ENTSO-E publishes an Annual Work Programme as required under REGULATION (EU) 2019/943 on the internal market for electricity.

The priorities outlined in the Work Programme reflect the legal mandates given to ENTSO-E by REGULATION (EU) 2022/869 on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure, REGULATION (EU) 2019/943 on the internal market for electricity and related Network Codes and Guidelines, REGULATION (EU) 2019/941 on risk-preparedness in the electricity sector, REGULATION (EU) No 347/2013 on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure, REGULATION (EU) No 543/2013 on the submission and publication of data in electricity markets and Commission Regulation (EU) No 838/2010 of 23 September 2010 on laying down guidelines relating to the inter-transmission system operator compensation mechanism. The work pursues on network code Cybersecurity, the drafting process of the new network code on Demand Response, and the amendments of the existing network codes and guidelines.

Each year ENTSO-E releases the Work Programme for public consultation. Stakeholder comments received during the Work Program consultation help to improve the programme, as most ENTSO-E activities require successful cooperation with market participants, grid users, and for some topics, with distribution system operators.
