Regional perspectives for the Austrian gas market

Study "Self-evaluation and regional perspectives for the Austrian gas market"

ACER's "European Gas Target Model - Review and Update" (AGTM) recommends that national regulatory authorities carry out a self-evaluation based on a set of metrics to assess the functioning of the respective national gas wholesale markets. Furthermore, the AGTM recommends to analyse potential structural market reforms in case of non-fulfilment of the requirements.
