The 18th Madrid Forum invited the European Commission and regulators to explore, in close cooperation with system operators and other stakeholders, the interaction and interdependence of all relevant areas for network codes and to initiate a process establishing a gas target model.
Regulators expressed their readiness to chair and coordinate this process, and to present an outline on the definition and the scope of the gas target model to be developed.
European Energy Regulators invite all stakeholders to participate in the call for evidence and to provide comments on the list of questions.
Following the consultation period, CEER/ERGEG published all comments received from stakeholders. If a respondent would like CEER/ERGEGto treat their contribution with confidentiality then this must be explicitly mentioned in their submission.
Given the importance of this issue, the first stakeholder workshop was held on 3 December 2010 in Vienna. The second workshop was held on 22 February 2011 in Bonn (Germany).
The third workshop is scheduled for 11 April 2011 in London.Stakeholders interested in participating in this workshop should submit their participation by filling in the on-line registration form no later than 2 April 2010.
The fourth workshop will be held in June 2011 in Brussels.
Based on the results of this call for evidence, the outcome of a public workshops and bilateral discussions with stakeholders, CEER will work further on a vision for a conceptual model for the European gas market.
