E.DSO publishes key messages for the new Parliament, shedding light on the DSO industry and its concerns for the upcoming legislative term

As key actors in the European energy sector, electricity distribution system operators (DSOs) want to explain their industry to the incoming policy makers of the new Parliament and the incoming College of Commissioners as well as provide key messages on what is needed for the development of the sector and for the achievement of the energy transition.

E.DSO has therefore distilled eight crucial points to help foster a clean and sustainable future through a European energy system that guarantees the highest security and quality of electricity supply at lowest societal cost.

A fair deal for consumers includes the possibility for citizens to take an active role in the energy transition. DSOs will play an important part in this development, by enabling new services and by catalysing markets as neutral facilitators. The distribution grid is the backbone of the future energy system that is characterised by increasing shares of variable renewables, distributed energy resources, and smart digital technologies, especially smart metering and smart grid projects.
