Why your views matter

We are seeking input from stakeholders and market participants on this proposal. TSOs of the Baltic CCR Region are initiating this open online consultation for a period of one month.

The Baltic CCR TSOs have prepared the methodology proposal and the explanatory documents presented relying on two studies procured during the preparation of the proposal contents. The studies highlight a tight situation in the Baltic FRR balancing capacity market and challenges in meeting the demand under certain market conditions. In this context, the Baltic CCR TSOs invite market participants to provide feedback to the methodology proposal and explanatory document in general, as well as specifically to an additional proposal by the Baltic CCR TSOs to allow a larger share of CZC to be allocated for balancing in the direction where day-ahead flow are not forecast. This concept, which has not been implemented in the proposal at hand, but the Baltic CCR TSOs consider adding to the proposal at a later stage, has been highlighted in Article 8 of the explanatory document.
