Energy Community Contracting Parties complete the 2020 pan-European electricity market monitoring report

4 November 2021

For the first time, the Energy Community Contracting Parties are included in the Electricity Wholesale Market Volume of the annual Market Monitoring Report published by the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) today.

A dedicated chapter covering the Energy Community Contracting Parties provides data on their electricity production mix and demand in 2020, including also market share and detailed information on capacity allocation and congestion income per bidding zone border. Following the same indicators used for EU Member States, the report assesses the Contracting Parties’ implementation of the connection network codes and the Regulation on Wholesale Energy Market Integrity and Transparency (REMIT), integration of renewables and progress in the establishment of the day-ahead market.

Director Kopač said: “Including the Contracting Parties in the 2020 electricity wholesale market report is a much welcome development, building on the well-established cooperation on monitoring activities in the gas wholesale sector and gas and electricity retail field between the Energy Community and ACER.”

On 9 November 2021, ACER will publish its Energy Retail and Consumer Protection Market Monitoring Report, for the fifth year in a row covering also the Energy Community Contracting Parties. The report looks back at the developments in energy retail markets and customer protection measures during 2020.

The Energy Community outlook was prepared based on information kindly provided by the regulatory authorities under the coordination of the ECRB Electricity and Customers and Retail Market Working Groups.
