    Goals / Remit

    We promote competition, transparency and open access in the European energy sector.

    We build trust in power and gas markets across Europe, so that they may underpin a sustainable and secure energy supply and enable the transition to a carbon neutral economy.

    We do this by:

    - Improving the functionality and design of European gas, electricity and associated markets for the benefit of the overall economy, society and especially end consumers.
    - Developing and maintaining standard wholesale supply contracts and standardising related transaction and business processes.
    - Facilitating debate amongst TSOs, regulators, policy makers, traders and others in the value chain about the future of the European energy market.

    We represent circa 130 companies which trade electricity, gas and carbon at national, regional and pan-european level. We seek to make markets work as well as possible in order to benefit security of supply, affordability and decarbonisation.

    Main EU files targeted

    The European Federation of Energy Traders (EFET) promotes and facilitates European energy trading in open,
    transparent, sustainable and liquid wholesale markets, unhindered by national borders or other undue

    Our principle activities are principally focussed on proposals which impact on the trade of electricity, gas and carbon. We also have interests in hydrogen and the development of the trading of renewable certificates. This includes:

    - The EU Emissions Trading System.
    - The design of electricity and gas markets at national and european level - with a focus on creating a single, competitive market.
    - Financial Regulation - Including REMIT, MIFID, MAR, EMIR.
    - The development of markets to trade certificates.

    Our current focus is on all aspects of the Fit for 55 package, the revision of the ETS, the hydrogen and gas markets decarbonisation package and various measures aimed at enhancing security of supply.

    Complementary Information

    As EFET is active at national and European level, the vast majority of colleagues work at both levels.
    Our EU influencing activity typically comes through considering EU legislative proposals and responding to them - normally in writing. Thus a majority of the time detailed above relates to the development of these positions - in collaboration with members. A relatively small proportion is spent discussing the issues with representatives of the institutions.

    Other financial info

    EFET represents the collective interests of our circa 140 member companies.

    We raise revenue by charging membership fees. These fees are used to cover the costs of our activities. These activities fall into 3 broad categories:

    - Developing and maintaining standards (the EFET Master Agreement is the basis on which much physical trading of gas and power takes place in Europe).
    - Monitoring and engaging with national energy and carbon policy in various parts of Europe.
    - Engaging with European measures and working with policy makers, grid companies and Transmission System Operators.
