External markets

The tendency for integration

The expansion of the Eastern European energy market was initiated with the Energy Community Treaty of 2005. The purpose of the treaty is to establish a European Energy community between the EU and South Eastern Europe in order to guarantee stable energy prices and continuous economic development and stability in the region. This goal calls for the design of a coherent regulatory and operational model of the Eastern and South Eastern European energy markets in order to promote their integration with the Central European market.

In its effort to optimize the energy market efficiency, the Energy community has established coordinated auctions for the trade of capacities that allow market participants to trade electrical energy across borders.

Regional integration

In order for the transition towards a pan-European electricity market to be carried out, market coupling on a regional level should be initiated first. The main characteristic of the regional integration process is the unification of the procedures for the trade of capacities and the trade of electricity services. The objective of regional market coupling is to improve service standards, efficiency and prices in energy markets as well as to ensure their sustainable development.
