Eurogas’ Position on the Extension of AggregateEU, the Demand Aggregation Platform

While Eurogas understands the request of the Commission for AggregateEU to continue being available for use due to the ongoing war in Ukraine and the impact this has on gas supply, we do not, in principle, support emergency measures such as AggregateEU becoming a permanent element of the market design beyond its original term. A more permanent structure under the normal legislative procedure was not considered at the start of the emergency situation. As the gas market continues to work effectively to deliver much needed gas for Europe, we are confident that as supply and demand equilibrate the need for and relevance of such an emergency tool will cease to exist.
