EU Member States were required to implement the Third Energy Package, adopted in 2009, by 3 March 2011. On the same date, the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) also became operational. Ownership unbundling, one of the key and most controversial features of the legislative package, will have to wait another year before its full implementation.
- State of play in implementation of the Third Energy Package and completion of an internal energy market in the EU
- Complementary measures, such as those on energy infrastructure for 2020 and enhancing market integrity and transparency in the energy sector
- The external dimension of EU energy policy, e.g. the Regulation on security of gas supply
- Enforcement of competition law rules as a complementary way to achieve an effective EU internal energy market
- The role of ACER in assisting and coordinating regulatory authorities in the exercise of their regulatory tasks at EU level, as well as monitoring the Transportation System Operators (TSOs) and their cooperation
- The relationship between national competition authorities and national regulatory authorities in light of the Third Package and some recent developments at national level
- The possible need for a Fourth Package.
