ACER and ENTSOG extend consultation period


ACER and ENTSOG extend consultation period on the FUNC issue (ID 01/2020) until 18 August 2022

The EU Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) and the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG) have discussed how to ensure greater flexibility to book firm capacity at interconnection points in an online workshop held on 27 June 2022. The discussion is also known as FUNC issue (ID 01/2020).

As a follow up of the event, ACER and ENTSOG opened a public consultation to continue the collection of more detailed inputs from stakeholders; particularly in relation to:

  • how to optimise capacity allocation and
  • how to assess and prioritise the proposals presented in the workshop, as well as their urgency.

Special attention is paid to the current and fast evolving conditions in the EU gas markets and how a change in capacity allocation would benefit the markets.

The deadline to provide input has been extended until 18 August 2022 and stakeholders are welcome to share their views by accessing our survey at this link.
