The Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) has published its work programme for 2016. ACER notes that in 2016 it will be concentrating its activities on four main areas: (i) the (post-2014) completion of the internal energy market; (ii) the infrastructure challenge; (iii) the monitoring of wholesale energy markets; and (iv) the longer-term regulatory challenges.

In relation to the Regulation on wholesale energy market integrity and transparency (REMIT), ACER notes that the implementation of REMIT’s monitoring framework will be completed in 2016, and thus it has begun actively monitoring trading in EU wholesale energy markets on the basis of the reported trade and fundamental data.
