the role of the decision for the energy community
THE ROLE OF THE DECISIONFOR THE ENERGY COMMUNITY

Indication of the continuity – facing the amendments in time

Recalling the Community objectivesin the EU context – results are expected on the ground of the EU acquis

Emphasis on the challenges in an updated legislative dimension – strengthen the regulators on national level, improve the regulatory coordination on regional (international) level, harmonize the role of the TSOs etc. i.e. face the market in real terms

the regulators in the energy community context
THE REGULATORSIN THE ENERGY COMMUNITY CONTEXT

The Energy Community Regulatory Board – structure and functions

Harmonizing the approach and independence on national level – major challenges

Promoting the investments– a key need (developed documents); strong cooperation with the other national authorities necessary!

the third package and vulnerability
THE THIRD PACKAGE AND VULNERABILITY
  • Energy Community acquis communautaire (Electricity and Gas Directives):

Measures to protect final customers and in particular adequate safeguards for protection of vulnerable customers required; Mechanisms for regulation to avoid any abuse of a dominant position, in particular to the detriment of consumers

  • Third legislative package strengthens the right of the customers:

Definition of a concept of vulnerable customers required; Appropriate measures providing social security benefits to ensure the necessary energy supply to vulnerable customers ; One of the objectives of regulatory authorities is to contribute to the protection of vulnerable customers

  • Undertaken and planned activities
on the modernization of the work steps towards the package implementation
ON THE MODERNIZATION OF THE WORK -STEPS TOWARDS THE PACKAGE IMPLEMENTATION

More initiatives from the Contracting Parties

- The Regional Energy Strategy as example

More active Business Community

- the Investment Advisory Panel

- the Dispute Settlement

More active Donors’ Community

- streamlining the support

- link the support with achieving concrete results

Where are the challenges

instead of a conclusion
INSTEAD OF A CONCLUSION
  • For the Energy Community the implementation of the Second Package is still a legally backed up priority,

BUT

  • In parallel - Work in the Third Package context continues

AS

  • This is objectively justified and practically necessary
