EIC allocation

AGGM as Local Issuing Office

The European scheme of Energy Identification Codes (EIC) was implemented for clear and effective data communication. An EIC is assigned to a specific object (system operator, balance group representatives, Supplier, balance group, Market Area, etc.). As a Local Issuing Office (LIO), AGGM is authorised to issue EICs to Austrian market participants. The application for EICs is made digitally via the AGGM platform. All active codes are published by AGGM.
