Akos Hofstadter and Nico Keyaerts of ACER
As the energy transition progresses, it continues to pose daunting challenges from the sheer enormity and urgency of the tasks at hand. In Europe, the vast differences between Member States may compound this intricacy. Electrification needs to be smart, with the right economic signals, to avoid unnecessary costs. This requires sophisticated tariff design. For the national regulatory authorities (NRAs) tasked with setting or approving tariffs for the electricity transmission and distribution networks, the European Union Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) provides critical guidance and support.
The Agency develops biennial reports on tariff methodologies of EU Member States and shares best practices, which national regulatory authorities shall duly take into consideration. The ACER reports account for new energy sector actors, the variability of renewable energy resources, local circumstances and the need for well-designed network tariffs to keep pace with the push for decarbonisation.
The Electrification Academy is delighted to bring you a webinar featuring Akos Hofstadter and Nico Keyaerts of ACER. They will offer insight into the complex topic of transmission and distribution network tariff design, including :
- An overview of current EU legislation and ACER's role regarding network tariffs
- The basic structures, principles and cost drivers of network tariffs.
- The value of time-of-use network tariffs and use of other economic signals.
- Findings from reviews of national practices for network tariffs, including injection charges, withdrawal charges, and connection charges.
- Recommendations for tariff design.
