IFIEC Europe answer to the Targeted Stakeholder Consultation Paper of the European Commission Directorate-General for Energy concerning the Amendments to the Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/1222 of 24 July 2015 establishing a guideline on capacity allocation and congestion management
IFIEC Europe represents the interests of industrial energy users in Europe for whom energy is a significant component of production costs and a key factor of competitiveness in their activities in both Europe and throughout the world. IFIEC Europe would like to thank the European Commission for this consultation on an update of the CACM Regulation, which IFIEC Europe has identified of one of the cornerstones of the efforts towards an integrated European electricity market. In this light, IFIEC Europe insists that any modifications to the CACM Regulation are only made with the utmost care and within an endeavour to facilitate market functioning and market integration (thus going beyond mere market coupling) in order to create benefits for consumers in Europe.
