NordREGs position paper on the revision of CACM

The Nordic Energy Regulators, NordREG, has published a position paper on the revision of CACM (CACM 2.0), focusing on the governance of the MCO function and NEMO competition.

NordREG believes that CACM 2.0 must ensure a clear separation between monopolistic tasks assigned to the MCO and commercial activities assigned to the NEMO, that when doing this the operational security of the MCO function should be prioritized but also keeping in mind that new regulatory measures should not exceed what is necessary to achieve the policy objectives.

NordREG also believes that CACM 2.0 should include a plan for the phasing out of monopoly NEMOs and all countries participating in the market coupling need to transit to the competitive NEMO model.
