Energy & Climate: Accelerating Smart Grids Deployment: Implementing the latest EU Smart Grids Task Force Recommendations in support of the Clean Energy Package

Published: 20 January 2020

Policies & Issues: Energy & Climate

A decade ago, the EU Smart Grids Task Force was set up to advise the European Commission on issues related to the development and deployment of smart grids. It is supported by several expert groups that focus on energy value chain debates on specific smart grids topics. In 2017, three new expert groups started their work to advise the Commission on preparing the grounds for potential secondary legislation on data exchange, cybersecurity for the electricity sector and demand response, for implementing the Clean Energy Package and the revised Electricity Regulation EU 2019/943 and Electricity Directive 2019/944 in particular. Their intensive work resulted in three recently published reports with specific recommendations. Orgalim was actively engaged in the three working groups and endorses the final reports. 

For a successful implementation of the Clean Energy Package and the EU’s 2030 energy and climate framework, it is now important to carry these reports forward to the next level and proceed with the development of the respective network codes and implementing measures as foreseen in article 59 of the Electricity Regulation 2019/943. We call on the incoming European Commission to secure the timely implementation of this provision as the next step and to progress with the implementation of the final EU SG TF reports.
