On 22 January 2010, the Commission published in the Official Journal a notice under Article 27(4) of Regulation 1/2003 to invite comments on commitments offered by E.ON pursuant to Article 9 of Regulation 1/2003. The Commission is concerned that E.ON may have breached Article 102 of the TFEU by virtue of its long-term bookings on its gas transmission systems. In order to address these concerns, E.ON has proposed to commit to a significant, structural reduction of its long-term gas capacity reservations at various entry points. It will release certain entry capacities by October 2010 and then commit to a further reduction of its overall share of bookings by October 2015.
