The focus of the Energy Community's work is to implement core EU energy legislation in the areas of gas, security of supply, oil, renewable energy, energy efficiency, environment, competition and statistics. These areas of work makeup the so-called Energy Communty acquis. The deadlines for transposition and implementation are determined in the respective acquis or by a Ministerial Council Decision. 


As the only permanent institution, the Energy Community Secretariat supports this process. Its tasks are threefold. It assists the Contracting Parties to fulfil their Treaty obligations, monitors and enforces the Treaty's implementation.





This section describes the work of the Energy Community towards full Treaty implementation. Sector by sector, the Obligations-subsection presents the acquis in place and spells out the most pressing policy issues. The Implementation-subsection builds on the Secretariat's latest Implementation Report and displays the state of compliance and priorities Party by Party. The Instruments-subsection features the key policy instruments set in place to support the Parties in fulfilling their acquis obligations. The last subsection, Enforcement, outlines the dispute settlement procedure and provides information on pending infringement cases.
