The EU is currently developing EU-wide Framework Guidelines and Network Codes, which could have far reaching implications for Britain’s gas network system.
Along with the Department of Energy & Climate Change, we recognise that many stakeholders have already engaged with these issues at a European level. We are also increasingly aware of the need to consolidate these efforts and develop a UK position that shows leadership on these network code issues.
The EU Gas Network Codes Stakeholder Group has been set up with the aim of drawing together stakeholder views, informing the UK negotiating position and taking a proactive stance on the development of a European target model, thus developing an influencing strategy to help deliver our objectives.
