Update proposal for the Methodology for Identifying Regional Electricity Crisis Scenarios

Closed 5 Dec 2023

Opened 6 Nov 2023


The “Methodology for Identifying Regional Electricity Crisis Scenarios” (the RP Methodology) was first approved by ACER in 2020 pursuant to Article 5 of Regulation (EU) 2019/941 of the European Parliament and of the Council on risk-preparedness in the electricity sector (RPR, link). The methodology lays down a framework on how TSOs identify electricity crisis scenario candidates and how these should be assessed into regional electricity crisis scenarios.

Article 5 of the RPR mandates ENTSO-E to update and improve the RP Methodology “[…] where significant new information becomes available”. Therefore, based on engagements with ECG and before the next cycle of creating the regional electricity crisis scenarios, ENTSO-E decided to commence the update and improvement process of the RP Methodology.

This consultation is the second public consultation for the update proposal to the RP Methodology. You can find the first public consultation behind this link. The input received during the first public consultation has been processed and the proposal amended accordingly. The results from the first and the second public consultation will be consolidated and published after the second public consultation has ended.
