Which regulation for efficient TSO financing costs?
ENTSOE internal seminar and FSR live debate
Vincent Rious presented an updated version of results of work about regulation of TSOs in Europe.
The functioning of the Internal Electricity Market in the EU and the integration of renewable energy sources require massive investments on the European electricity network. We therefore need to study the potential consequences and interactions of national regulatory choices with regard to network investments for the development of the pan-European market.
Vincent highlighted that the risk from tariff setting on the financing costs of TSOs is seldom taken into account by regulators while proposing some solutions to limit this risk.
