The Agency for the Co-operation of Energy Regulators (ACER) has published its work programme for 2015. The work programme highlights the priority areas on which ACER will focus over the next three years.

The work programme notes that ACER’s greatest challenge in 2015 is likely to be the launching of the new, unprecedented and sector-specific energy market monitoring framework mandated by the Regulation on wholesale energy market integrity and transparency (REMIT). ACER has been working since 2011 on its implementation and the new framework should come into operation in 2015.

The work programme also notes that ACER will continue to monitor developments in the internal energy market, including the proper implementation of the rules contained in the network codes drafted by the European Network of Transmission System Operators. ACER will also focus on the implementation of the Trans-European Energy Network Regulation and will continue to play a role in the work related to the selection of projects of common interest, infrastructure projects which are particularly beneficial in supporting a more integrated European energy market and removing “energy islands”.
