ENTSOG, as required by Regulation (EC) 715/2009, publishes its Annual Work Programme (AWP) and Annual Report annually to inform stakeholders of planned activities and tasks undertaken. The Annual Report assesses ENTSOG’s work and achievements retrospectively for each given year and provides an opportunity for comparing the delivered results against the AWP. The ENTSOG AWP contains the expected activities for ENTSOG in the upcoming year, is aligned with the European Commission energy policies, takes into account the ACER opinions on ENTSOG’s work and allows the interested stakeholders to prepare their activities vis-à-vis ENTSOG.
ENTSOG’s formal responses to consultations and positions on various topics are available here. These are prepared is to enhance transparency and facilitate information sharing.
Regulation (EC) No 715/2009 requires European-wide Network Codes (‘NC’) to be developed by ENTSOG for cross-border network issues and market integration issues. The development phase of the NCs (as well as the EC Guidelines) is now finished. ENTSOG is required to monitor and analyse the implementation of NCs and the EC Guidelines and their effect on the harmonisation of applicable rules aimed at facilitating market integration. As required, ENTSOG will also continue to actively participate in the further development of the NCs and the Guidelines through the Functionality Process and also the formal amendment process, as required.
One of ENTSOG’s main deliverables are short and medium to long-term assessments such as those included in the Ten-Year Network Development Plan (TYNDP) process, TYNDP being the Union-wide network development plan. In addition, the ENTSOG maps show commitment to transparency by providing up-to-date information to market participants.
ENTSOG has been tasked to deliver Summer Supply Outlook and Winter Supply Outlook reports, to assess the ability of the European gas infrastructures to provide flexibility as well as the resilience of the European gas infrastructures under peak conditions. Regulation (EU) 2017/1938 requires that ENTSOG carry out a Union-wide simulation of gas supply and infrastructure disruption scenarios. ENTSOG has also been tasked to take part in the works of the Gas Coordination Group and ensure functionality of the Regional Coordination System for Gas (ReCo System for Gas).
Regulation (EC) 715/2009 and its amendments require ENTSOG to provide a Union-wide platform on which all TSOs for gas make their relevant data publicly available. The Transparency Platform provides technical and commercial data on gas transmission systems, which include interconnection points and connections with storages, LNG facilities, distribution networks, final consumers and production facilities ENTSOG ensures facilitation of the existing ReCo System for Gas as a CNOT for emergency conditions, including a common incidents classification scale, and other supporting documentation for the ReCo Teams. ENTSOG also provides a long-term Gas Quality Outlook in the TYNDP.
ENTSOG 2050 Roadmap and Action Plan reflects its support of the goals of the European Green Deal and legislative initiatives within the 'Fit for 55' package, Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas Market package and the REPowerEU action plan. ENTSOG has also published its Hydrogen Project Visualisation Platform, as a comprehensive, interactive map for hydrogen projects along the whole value chain based on open source data.
