Implementing the EU Network Codes into the GB regime is going to be one of the biggest challenges facing the industry over the next decade. The benefits from the EU Network Codes will only be felt once they have been fully implemented. A successful implementation will require collaboration, co-operation and transparency between all industry participants on a national level, along with cross border dialog and European coordination between TSOs and NRAs. National Grid is dedicated to providing greater information and transparency to the industry, through the creation of the following pages.
The latest information on EU Network Code Development & Implementation
This consultation area will provide you with details of all open European consultations being run by NG, along with being a central repository for NG responses to European consultations.
National Grid's Implementation Strategy
Each EU code (Congestion Management Principles (CMP), Capacity Allocation Mechanism (CAM), Balancing, Interoperability and Tariffs etc.) contains (or will contain) requirements for translation into the GB regime. It is for the TSOs to develop what the logical grouping of implementation phases should be in order to achieve compliance.
Rather than implement on a code by code basis, National Grid believes that compliance can be best met through implementation phases (see diagram below for details). Each phase will have a particular IS release plan and associated UNC, Licence and process changes.
