ACER reports that implementation of Network Code on Requirements for Generators is on track

Wednesday, November 27, 2019


According to the latest implementation monitoring report of ACER, in a majority of Member States, the implementation of the Network Code on Requirements for Generators is well on track.

The report monitors two main aspects – “the formal approval of the determination of significance for generating units and the establishment of requirements for general application, a set of parameters whose value is defined at national level”. Accordingly, ACER recommends that the relevant National Regulatory Authorities complete or promote the expeditious implementation of the Network Code on Requirements for Generators and inform the Agency upon its full implementation.

Additionally, ACER recommends that prompt implementation of the determination of significance and the requirements of general application in Bulgaria, Spain, France, Great Britain and Greece. Also, the implementation needs to be completed in the Netherlands, since only part of the requirements is currently approved.

The Network Code on Requirements for Generators is regarded as one of the main drivers for creating harmonised solutions and products necessary for an efficient pan-European (and global) market in generator technology.
