Demand Connection Code public workshop on 18 April 2012

(PresseBox) ( Brussels, )
ENTSO-E will hold a public workshop on the Demand Connection Code on 18 April 2012 in Brussels. The preliminary scope of this network code as well as the proposed approach to draft this code will be presented and discussed at this workshop. Registration for the workshop is now open.

On 5 January 2012, the EC issued a letter mandating ENTSO-E to develop a network code on DSO and industrial load grid connection rules within a period of 12 months. ENTSO-E refers to this code as the Demand Connection Code (DCC). This is the second network code to be developed within ACER's Framework Guidelines on Electricity Grid Connections after the Network Code for "Requirements for Grid Connection applicable to all Generators".

The scoping exercise for the content of this network code started already well in advance of receiving the EC mandate. The outcome of bilateral discussions with main stakeholder associations is available in the DCC webpage. This resulted also in a preliminary scope document which was recently published.

At the moment ENTSO-E is in the drafting phase of the Demand Connection Code. The planned steps in the consultation process with stakeholders and dates for interactions will be published mid-March. ENTSO-E already proposes those with an interest in the context of this code to save the date of 18 April for a public workshop which will take place in the ENTSO-E premises (Avenue de Cortenbergh 100, B-1000 Brussels) from 11h00 - 16h00 CET. The detailed agenda will be published in mid-March.

Stakeholders can register for the workshop via email, by indicating their full names, contact details and organization to Mrs Thanh-Thanh Le Thi (, no later than 5 April 2012.
