EDSO Response to the European Commission’s Public consultation on priorities for Network Codes and Guidelines for 2018
EDSO welcomes the consultation of the European Commission (EC) on the establishment of the annual priority lists for the development of network codes (NC) and guidelines (GL) for 2018. Considering the lack of new substance in the consultation document, EDSO would also like to take this opportunity to formulate some general remarks on the way forward in the development of network codes.
Over the last years, EDSO has deployed considerable efforts to contribute to the development of the network codes & guidelines (NC/GL). By providing continuous input & feedback on documents or consultations, participating in meetings & workshops, and contributing to the activities of European Stakeholder Committees (ESC), EDSO has taken an active part in this process.
EDSO recognises the progress achieved in the last years that led to the adoption of the remaining NC/GL and the publication of the Guideline on Electricity Balancing and Network Code on Emergency and Restoration on 28 November 2017. However, it is quite likely that the implementation of NC/GL will represent the most critical part of this process.
