Danish Utility Regulator postpones self-evaluation of Danish-Swedish wholesale gas market
Danish Utility Regulator (DUR) and the Swedish regulatory authority Energimarknadsinspektionen (Ei) postpones a joint self-evaluation of the Danish-Swedish wholesale gas market.
In 2020, DUR and Ei decided that a self-evaluation should be postponed to 2023, because the Danish-Swedish gas market were undergoing substantial changes due to shutdown of the Tyra-platform and construction of Baltic Pipe.
Because uncertainty is still present regarding the recommencement of production from the Tyra-platform and uncertainty related to accessibility of robust and sufficient data, DUR and Ei has decided to postpone the self-evaluation further.
In the beginning of 2024, the two authorities will discuss the time of evaluation and accessibility of sufficient data.
DUR and Ei are endorsed to evaluate the Danish-Swedish gas market every third year based on recommendations by the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) in its European vision paper for the European gas market – The Gas Target Model (GTM). The evaluation is based on a model and metrics for well-functioning gas markets, security of supply, and the future role for natural gas.
In 2017, DUR and Ei published the first self-evaluation. The planned self-evaluation in 2020 originally was postponed to 2023 and has now been further postponed due to lack of sufficient data.
