CEER draft advice on the introduction of a Europe-wide Energy Wholesale Trading Passport
Complementary to its advice on the development of a tailor made oversight regime for the wholesale electricity market, CEER - at the request of the European Commission - is engaged since 2009 in the issue of analysing the regulatory access to wholesale energy trading as another key element on the way to create a Single European Energy Market and to ensure the integrity of energy trading in Europe.
The current CEER draft advice sets out a framework for dealing with the existing shortcomings regarding regulatory access to trading on electricity and gas wholesale markets along the lines which were presented and welcomed at teh Florence Forum in December 2010. It provides recommendations on whether harmonisation of wholesale market trading access conditions is needed and if yes, what would be the best instrument to achieve it.
