Regulators from across the continent gathered in San Domenico to discuss the importance of transmission tariff structures in the internal gas market as part of the FSR’s Regulatory Policy Workshop Series. Attendees explored the idea of a more centralised and integrated approach to gas regulation as well as the promotion of competition in the market.
Speaking after the event, Markus Krug from E-Control said that “there’s a short-term solution to follow the tariff network code… For the future rethinking the entry/exit system is worth doing. It sounds nice from a theoretical point of view, and there are a lot of questions to address in relation to that which will take time. It’s move more towards a centrally planned system for the European market. Somebody will have to decide on reluctances in infrastructure and TSO compensation.”
The FSR’s Regulatory Policy Workshop Series will continue on April 29th with an event exploring the changing role of DSOs in the Energy Union.
