Risk-preparedness in the electricity sector
The main objectives of the Regulation on risk-preparedness in the electricity sector (Regulation (EU) 2019/941 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 June 2019 on risk-preparedness in the electricity sector) is to improve:
- the identification of possible crisis situations,
- the preparation of crisis-management plans, and
- the handling of a crisis situation.
The Regulation replaces earlier Directive 2005/89/EC.
It establishes a common methodology for harmonised national risk-preparedness plans at national and regional level as well as improves information exchange, transparency and accountability in the management of electricity crisis situations.
