2014 - Results of completed consultation on the procedure of constitution of strategic reserve (winter 2014-2015)


On 4 April 2014, a draft version of this procedure was made available for final consultation by all stakeholders (grid users, producers, the federal regulator, the Energy Administration, etc.). This draft version took as much account as possible of the comments received at and between ISR Task Force meetings.

In particular, a Task Force meeting was held on 16 April 2014 at which the draft procedure was discussed and stakeholders could provide their comments. All stakeholders were invited to submit their final comments by 25 April 2014 (11:59 p.m.), the end of the consultation period according to the timetable approved by the Administration, CREG and Elia. The feedback received from market parties can be found below (unless confidential). The material discussed at the Task Force meetings and the minutes are also available on this page of the website.
