Nordic TSOs’ proposal for ramping restrictions (amended)

Closed 4 Sep 2020

Opened 3 Aug 2020

Overview

This consultation concerns the amended proposal of all Nordic TSOs for ramping restrictions for active power output in accordance with Article 137(3) and (4) of the Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/1485 of 2 August 2017 establishing a guideline on electricity transmission system operation (SO Regulation).

The new Nordlink interconnector between Norway and Germany requires an amendment to the proposal related to ramping restrictions that was approved by the Nordic NRAs in July 2019. The amendment to the proposal adds NordLink to the list of existing HVDC interconnectors in Article 3(1) and 3(2) of the Proposal. By this, NordLink will be treated in the same way as the existing HVDC interconnectors. For more explanation, the TSOs refer to the explanatory document of the proposal sent to the NRAs in May 2019 (and approved in July 2019).

Why we are consulting

The proposal is subject to public consultation according to article 11 of SO Regulation.

What happens next

The TSOs of the Nordic synchronous area shall duly take into account the views of stakeholders resulting from the consultation and use them to prepare the final version of the document that will be submitted to the Nordic NRAs. In all cases, a sound justification for including or not the views resulting from the consultation shall be provided together with the submission of the proposal and published in a timely manner before, or simultaneously with the publication of the amended proposal on ramping restrictions.
