Brussels, 2 May 2011 | Europex welcomes the Public Consultation by ACER on “Framework Guidelines on Capacity Allocation Mechanisms for the European Gas Transmission Network” . Europex believes that CAM needs rules and measures that provide a clear framework for the allocation and the creation of interconnection capacities to achieve the objective of a well-functioning, efficient and open internal market. A sufficient level of cross-border gas interconnection capacity should be achieved and market integration fostered in order to complete the internal market in natural gas. Gas Exchanges are prime actors in the development and management of gas and balancing markets in Europe. Therefore, efficient market-based CAM should be designed taking into account the need of harmonising and integrating the CAM with the gas and balancing markets.
