“The Integration of the Internal Energy Market in the European Union: Recent Developments and Future Challenges”

The talk is co-sponsored with the Harvard Electricity Policy Group.

Background on Mr. Pototschnig and ACER:
 
Alberto Pototschnig is the first Director of the European Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER), established in 2010 by the European Commission. He took office in September 2010.
 
The mission of ACER is to complement and coordinate the work of national energy regulators at the European-Union (EU) level and work towards the completion of a single EU energy market for electricity and natural gas.
 
ACER plays a central role in the development of EU-wide network and market rules with a view to enhance competition. It coordinates regional and cross-regional initiatives which favour market integration. It monitors the work of European networks of transmission system operators (ENTSOs) and notably their EU-wide network development plans. Finally, it monitors the functioning of gas and electricity markets in general, and of wholesale energy trading in particular.
