Towards an Energy Union: ENTSO-E’s Initial ...


ENTSO-E publishes its initial proposals on the Energy Union. It outlines several recommendations for the design and implementation of the Energy Union framework.

These practical proposals are fully supportive of the ideas and ambitions outlined by the European Commission in its Communication “A Framework Strategy for a Resilient Energy Union with a Forward-Looking Climate Change Policy”. The paper recommends several key actions: •Full application of the existing legislation through swift adoption and implementation of the ten electricity network codes which are a strong basis of the Internal Electricity Market; •Facilitation of investments into transmission infrastructure through the launch of a pan-European communication plan to support publicly critical EU infrastructure projects; •Stronger coordination between Member States' energy-mix and security of supply policies at both regional and European level – for this, ENTSO-E's with regionally coordinated system adequacy reports provide a strong contribution; •Stronger regional coordination to prevent and manage any energy scarcity situations; •Upgrade the current market design with a view to integrating renewables into the market, empowering end-consumers and improving market incentives; and •Fostering innovation and new technologies in power systems, including storage and demand side response.
