The Commission’s Electricity Regulation and Directive proposals: right direction but room for improvement

Brussels, 23 March 2017 | The present position paper provides the views of Europex, the Association of European Energy Exchanges, on both the recast of the EU Electricity Directive and the EU Electricity Regulation of the “Clean Energy for All Europeans” package. It constitutes a follow-up to our first position paper on the reviews of the Renewable Energy Directive and the Energy Efficiency Directive.

Overall, we consider that the two legislative proposals for the review of the Electricity Regulation and Directive constitute good progress towards the completion of the EU Internal Energy Market while recognising the central role of energy exchanges and the importance of strong market price signals in all Member States.
