Europex observations on issues arising at Regional Mini Fora

Brussels, 8 April 2005 | Europex attended all seven regional mini fora and presented, together with ETSO, the Flow-based Market Coupling (‘FMC’) model.

FMC seemed to provide a valuable service by providing a common frame of reference for the regional discussions. A number of issues and concerns arose in the various fora relating to market coupling, and Europex would like to offer its observations on these issues. Please find the whole position paper attached.
