Treatment of Losses by Network Operators - an ERGEG Position Paper for public consultation
ERGEG’s analysis of network losses gives an overview of national practices regarding the definition, procurement, financial recovery of network losses and incentives for their reduction. Furthermore, it shows the actual practices regarding network losses in Europe by means of representative case studies from some Member States and comparative analysis.
In addition, relevant features that need to be tackled in order to promote a level-playing field in the treatment of losses at a European-wide level have been discussed. To this end, some questions are presented to stakeholders during this public consultation.
This document and the public consultation will serve as the background for further discussions and the development of Guidelines of Good Practice on losses, which will serve as the basis for future more detailed technical rules and / or codes according to the proposed amended Regulation 1228/2003.
Interested parties are invited to submit comments by 30 September 2008 and these should be sent by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Following the end of the public consultation period, ERGEG will publish all comments and replies to questions received from stakeholders. If a respondent would like ERGEG to treat their contribution with confidentiality then this must be explicitly mentioned in their reply. Unless marked as confidential, all responses will be published by placing them on the ERGEG website: www.energy-regulators.eu.
