Recast Implementation: Amendments of Annex VII on the “Schedule for the allocation process”

Recast Implementation: Amendments of Annex VII on the “Schedule for the allocation process”

Monday, 6 February 2017

Article 43 (2) of Directive 2012/34/EU (the “Recast Directive”) empowers the Commission to adopt delegated acts concerning some amendments of Annex VII regarding the “Schedule for the allocation process”. In April 2016, the European Commission announced its intention to modify Annex VII of Directive 2012/34/EU on the schedule for capacity allocation.

This CER-EIM Position Paper, which refers to the third discussion paper circulated by the Commission on 16 December 2016, builds on the Technical Opinion provided by the TTR project and calls on the European Commission to base its amendments on what is necessary in the light of the experience gathered, in order to ensure an efficient allocation process and to reflect the operational concerns of all stakeholders.
