ENTSO-E Annual Work Programme

ENTSO-E publishes an Annual Work Programme as required under REGULATION (EU) 2019/943 on the internal market for electricity.

The priorities outlined in the Work Programme reflect the legal mandates given to ENTSO-E by REGULATION (EU) 2022/869 on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure, REGULATION (EU) 2019/943 on the internal market for electricity and related Network Codes and Guidelines, REGULATION (EU) 2019/941 on risk-preparedness in the electricity sector, REGULATION (EU) No 347/2013 on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure, REGULATION (EU) No 543/2013 on the submission and publication of data in electricity markets and Commission Regulation (EU) No 838/2010 of 23 September 2010 on laying down guidelines relating to the inter-transmission system operator compensation mechanism. This Annual Work Programme is also in line with the European Commission’s priority list for the development of network codes and guidelines for the period from 2020 to 2023. The work pursues on network code Cybersecurity, the drafting process of the new network code on Demand Response, and the amendments of the existing network codes and guidelines.

Each year ENTSO-E releases the Work Programme for public consultation. Stakeholder comments received during the Work Program consultation help to improve the programme, as most ENTSO-E activities require successful cooperation with market participants, grid users, and for some topics, with distribution system operators.

Annual Work Programme 2023

This year, ENTSO-E, introduced a pre-consultation phase of the list of deliverables of the Annual Work Programme 2023 with its independent Advisory Council (iAC), as part of its strategy to increase transparency in the adoption processes.

ENTSO-E, compliant with Article 31 of the Regulation (EU) 2019/943, submitted the Annual Work Programme for 2023 to a public consultation that ran from 05 July to 15 August 2022. The aim is for stakeholders to submit their comments and express their views in the preparation of the Annual Work Programme. Please access here the version submitted to consultation, and find below the overview of the comments received and how they were addressed.

During this year’s Public Consultation, on 27 July 2022 a public webinar was organised with Stakeholders to exchange views on the content and the different aspects of the Programme. Recording and slides are available here.
