EUGINE contribution to ACER consultation on CO2 emission limits for capacity mechanisms

EUGINE has been actively pleading for the adoption of a simple harmonised calculation methodology for the new CO2 emission limits for power plants participating in capacity mechanisms. It is important that the same clear requirements apply to power plant operators in all EU Member States. To contribute to this objective, EUGINE was pleased to reply to the ACER consultation on the future guidelines for a calculation methodology. The European Engine Power Plants Association highlighted the need for specific provisions for cogeneration power plants, generating both electricity & heat. Our association recalled also that the ACER guidelines should be fully in line with article 22 of the electricity market regulation.
