The European Electricity Network Codes are a set of technical rules which aim at harmonising the EU internal electricity market. These codes are detailed documents that dictate EU wide standards and requirements covering power generation, demand, grid network operations and wholesale market participation.
The implementation of these codes is required by all EU Member states over the next few years to enable electricity network operators, generators, suppliers and consumers to operate more effectively in the pan-European electricity market.
