ENTSO-E Public Workshop on Implementing the European Connection Network Codes – challenges and solutions

Date: 23/09/2015 -  

​​​​When: 23 September 2015 from 10:00 to 17:00 CET,

Where: Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Rue du Fossé-aux-loups 47, B-1000 Brussels,


The European Connection Network Codes - Requirements for Generators (RfG), Demand Connection Codes (DCC) and High Voltage Direct Current Connections (HVDC) have either been already adopted by the European Commission, like the NC RfG, or will be adopted by end 2015. The expected entry into force of the three European Connection Network Codes is thus scheduled for late 2015, early 2016.

The Member States have the obligation to implement these codes no later than three years after their entry into force. Within this timeframe the Member states have only 2 years to define the national specifications, the so-called non-exhaustive requirements.

In order to support the implementation at national level ENTSO-E organized on 23 September 2015 in Brussels a public workshop on the Connection Network Codes implementation.

The workshop acquainted the stakeholders with existing examples of codes implementation and exchange suggestions and opinions on the topic. The aim was to raise awareness of challenges ahead and present the different approaches taken by some Member States.
