UNIFE TG/MG: main developments• UNIFE Mirror & Topical groups– Over the past 2-3 years, UNIFE has developed a network ofMirror and Topical Groups– This network now covers largely the technical challenges andissues faced by UNIFE members– It allows the Supply industry to speak with one voice:• In the WP of the ERA (TSIs, Safety unit)• In the different CEN / CENELEC WGs• In front of the other actors (Operators, Infrastructure Managers)– It improves the understanding of common issues by exchangeof best practices, experiences– Therefore, an always wider network is necessary and furtherexperts from all UNIFE members are encouraged toparticipate
