4th Technical Workshop: Gas Market Design and Natural Gas Transmission Grid Codes
April 4-5, 2019 // Budapest, Hungary
Sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)
Organized by the the Energy Regulators Regional Association (ERRA) and
The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC)
Framework and Issues:
The USAID-supported workshop, organized by ERRA and NARUC, will explore regulators’ role in facilitating gas infrastructure development, network integration, and cross-border trade. The two-day workshop will feature presentations and case studies covering two technical areas where regulators play a critical role: ten year network development plan and Transmission Grid Code development.
While natural gas transmission system operators (TSOs) play a predominant role in both developing network development plans and drafting Transmission Grid Codes, regulators must review, approve, and monitor them and oversee their implementation. At times, they must also directly collaborate with TSOs to ensure that regulatory requirements are adequately addressed and incorporated. The workshop will focus on the following topics: 1) regulators’ role in reviewing, approving, and monitoring natural gas ten year network development plans; and 2) regulators’ role in harmonizing transmission grid codes to support regional integration.
