EC applies cost-benefit analysis methodology on European electricity and gas networks

The European Commission (EC) has adopted cost-benefit analysis (CBA) methodologies designed by the European Networks of Transmission Operators.  These methods allow European energy network projects to be assessed against economic, supply security and environmental criteria, and play a crucial role in the future development of European network development plans.

Frontier (Europe) advised the Association for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) on the CBA for electricity projects. Frontier stressed the importance of valuing a wide range of benefits in monetary terms to avoid double counting in any CBA, and of ensuring that the final results are transparent and comparable across project options. Frontier also supported the EC in developing the CBA methodology for gas projects.

Frontier regularly advises regulators, public institutions and companies on the design and application of cost-benefit analysis and regulation.
