TRANSMISSION SYSTEM OPERATORS OF ITALY AND GREECE CONDUCT A PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON THE DRAFT PROJECT PROPOSALS TO PROVIDE INCREMENTAL CAPACITY FOR GAS TRANSMISSION BETWEEN GREECE AND ITALY
In accordance with the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2017/459, establishing a network code on capacity allocation mechanisms in gas transmission systems and
- following the publication, on 27 July 2017, of a Joint Demand Assessment Report which concluded that an incremental capacity project would be initiated for the potential interconnection between Greece and Italy

GAS TRANSMISSION SYSTEM OPERATORS OF GREECE AND ITALY PUBLISH THEIR FIRST JOINT DEMAND ASSESSMENT REPORT (DAR) OF INCREMENTAL CAPACITY BETWEEN GREECE AND ITALY
In accordance with the requirements of the new Regulation (EU) 2017/459, establishing a network code on capacity allocation mechanisms in gas transmission systems, Snam Rete Gas and DESFA prepared their first joint Demand Assessment Report (DAR) of incremental capacity on the border of the neighbouring entry-exit gas transmission systems between Greece and Italy.
The joint DAR was prepared in line with the ENTSOG Template and is available here
Pursuant to Chapter V of the Regulation each odd-numbered year as of the entering into force of the Regulation, TSOs shall initiate their process of assessing the demand for incremental capacity (incremental process). The process consists of several phases starting with demand assessment for incremental capacity and ending with projects implementation in case the economic test is successful. The demand assessment for incremental capacity consists of two stages – users submit their non-binding demand indications (within 8 weeks) and TSOs prepare joint DARs (also within 8 weeks).
