Gas, Energy infrastructure
Public authorities, Member States authorities, private organisations, industry associations, SMEs, Consultancies, other relevant stakeholders and Citizens (inside and outside of the European Union).
Access to cross-border gas network infrastructure is a prerequisite to the completion of the internal market for gas. However, interconnection points between Member States are often contractually congested as current congestion management procedures have not proven effective.
In order to facilitate newcomers' access to transmission capacities as well as to make the use of existing capacity more efficient, the Commission considers modifying the rules applying to congestion management procedures in the framework of the guidelines annexed to the Gas Regulation (EC) No. 715/2009 (Chapter 2.2 of Annex 1 of the Regulation).
