  • European Network Codes 


    Cross-border energy networks function according to rules that govern operators' actions and determine in what way access is made available to users. With the increase of interconnections between the various countries of the European Union, it became necessary to establish rules at European level, so as to ensure the effectiveness of energy flows. These rules are known as Network Codes, and they regulate cross-border transactions and system operations.

    The creation of these Network Codes stems from the Third Energy Package, specifically Regulation (EC) n.º 714/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 July 2009, on conditions for access to the network for cross-border exchanges in electricity, and Regulation (EC) n. º 715/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 July 2009, on conditions for access to the natural gas transmission networks, that estabilish the areas in which Network Codes will be developed and the process for their development.

    EU Member State National Regulatory Agencies participate in the preparation of these Network Codes within ACER as well as their subsquent implementation at national level.
