Draft methodologies and common rules for cross-border participation in capacity mechanisms

Closes 13 Mar 2020

Opened 31 Jan 2020

Overview

Within the Regulation (EU) 2019/943 of 5 June 2019 on the internal market for electricity, Article 26 paragraph 1 introduces an obligation to enable direct cross-border participation of capacity providers located in Member States which are electrical neighbours.

Further in the Regulation (EU) 2019/943, Article 26 paragraph 11 lists common rules, methodologies and terms of operation which aim at facilitating the implementation of direct cross-border participation in capacity mechanisms. ENTSO-E is required to develop a proposal for these six rules, methodologies and terms of operations and to submit it to ACER by 5 July 2020.

This consultation concerns ENTSO-E's proposal for:

  • a methodology for calculating the maximum entry capacity for cross-border participation as referred to in Article 26 paragraph 7 of the Regulation (EU) 2019/943;
  • a methodology for sharing the revenues referred to in Article 26 paragraph 9 of the Regulation (EU) 2019/943;
  • common rules for the carrying out of availability checks referred to in point (b) of Article 26 paragraph 10 of the Regulation (EU) 2019/943;
  • common rules for determining when a non-availability payment is due;
  • terms of the operation of the registry as referred to in point (a) of Article 26 paragraph 10 of the Regulation (EU) 2019/943;
  • common rules for identifying capacity eligible to participate in the capacity mechanism as referred to in point (a) of Article 26 paragraph 10 of the Regulation (EU) 2019/943.

Article 27 of the Regulation (EU) 2019/943 requires that ENTSO-E consults stakeholders and takes the results of the consultation into consideration in its proposal before submitting it to ACER.

A stakeholder workshop will take place on 12 February 2020 to present ENTSO-E proposal and to discuss initial stakeholders' feedback. The registration link and further details about the workshop can be found at this link.
