EER’s view on the proposed EU DSO Body

Clean Energy Package to extend traditional monopolies of dominant energy operators.

EER is greatly concerned that without effective unbundling of its members the proposed EU DSO Body would reinforce vertically integrated companies’ role in the detriment of independent operators. EER underlines that such a body should be strictly controlled and monitored by the European Commission, ACER and other regulatory agencies in order to ensure maximum transparency and independency from the business interests of DSO’s parent utilities. The work of drafting network codes needs to be carried out by a neutral entity to avoid the potential for DSOs to attempt to influence the content of the regulations in a manner that gives their parent utilities an unfair advantage over new market players.
