Intraday cross-zonal gate opening and gate closure times

Closed 18 May 2016

Opened 18 Apr 2016


This consultation concerns a common proposal developed by all Transmission System Operators regarding  intraday cross-zonal gate opening and intraday cross-zonal gate closure times (“IDCZGT Proposal”) in accordance with Article 59(1) of the Commission Regulation (EU) No 2015/1222 of 24 July 2015 establishing a Guideline on Capacity Allocation and Congestion Management (CACM).

Together with the IDCZGT Proposal, a document outlining the background and rationale for the gate opening and closure times being proposed has been developed (“Explanatory Document”) and is presented for consultation.

Why your views matter

The TSOs responsible for submitting the common proposal regarding the definition of the intraday cross-zonal gate opening and intraday cross-zonal gate closure times have to consult stakeholders as defined in Article 12 of the CACM. To fulfil this CACM requirement, and even more importantly, to get the input from stakeholders and market participants on this important feature of the future European electricity markets, ENTSO-E and the TSOs hold this open on-line consultation.
