Third Gas Package Revision: EASE Proposals for a Decarbonised Gas Market

The European Commission announced in its 2021 Working Programme that the Third Gas Package will be revised to regulate competitive decarbonised gas markets: EASE believes that energy storage solutions as Hydrogen and Power-to-Gas will play a key role in the transition of the gas system, and sees the proposed revision as a great opportunity to enhance sector integration as well as the deployment of renewable carbon gases.

Reply to the Public Consultation on All Continental Europe TSOs Proposal

EASE welcomes the efforts of ENTSO-E and all TSOs in the CE and Nordic synchronous area to determine a time period required for frequency containment reserve (FCR) providing units or groups with limited energy reservoirs (LER) to remain available during alert state, in accordance with Article 156(11) of SO GL.

The European Union as a whole has agreed on ambitious goals to increase renewable energy in the energy system and become carbon neutral by 2050. Energy storage technologies can provide an important contribution to system security while enabling the transition to a decarbonised energy system. The fast-dynamic response of energy storage devices is expected to help cope with the system inertia decrease and the RES variability, thereby contributing to grid stability. However, energy storage can only provide such services if there are no undue barriers in the network code provisions and market entry and development is attractive for LER.

EASE supports setting Tmin for FCR providers with LER to 15 minutes, however, EASE notes that the methodology itself should be re-assessed before it is possible to carry out the CBA and based on that, to discuss the results.
