On 13 October, the EU4Energy Governance workshop discussed the first draft of the gap analysis of the legislation related to the cross-border capacity allocation between Ukraine and Moldova, developed under the EU4Energy project. The document will further become a basis for Recommendations on establishment of the joint capacity allocation process between Moldova and Ukraine, including arrangements of transmission system operators related to the joint capacity allocation process.

The meeting gathered representatives of the two Energy Community Contracting Parties, including the national regulatory authorities (ANRE and NEURC), transmission system operators (Moldelectrica and Ukrenergo), representatives of the Support Group to Ukraine (European Commission) and Energy Community experts.

The parties went through the gap analysis of the existing provisions in the national legislation of both countries related to cross-border capacity allocation and discussed comments provided by the Ukrainian and Moldovan stakeholders. The updated text of the gap analysis will be provided to the beneficiaries shortly.

The effective management of congestion issues should improve the functioning, transparency and competitiveness of electricity markets in Moldova and Ukraine. This will benefit final customers, be they households or businesses, through competitive prices, more accurate price estimates and higher standards of service, and contribute to security of supply in electricity.
