The European Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) is an Agency of the European Union by the Third Energy Package in 2009.[1] It was established in 2010 and has its seat in Ljubljana, Slovenia.[2]

On 6 May, the Administrative Board designated Alberto Pototschnig as its first Director. By deciding on their director and chairs, ACER took a step forward towards becoming fully operational.

The basis for the establishment of ACER is Regulation 713/2009 of the European Parliament and the Council of 13 July 2009. The Regulation describes the establishment and legal status, tasks, organisation and financial provisions.[3]

ACER is the second intergovernmental organization headquartered in Slovenia. The first was the International Center for Promotion of Enterprises (ICPE).[4]
