Closes 30 Apr 2020

Opened 27 Feb 2020

Overview

ENTSO-E has recently finalized a draft report on “All CE and Nordic TSOs’ results of CBA in accordance with Art.156(11) of the Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/1485 of 2 August 2017” which is now submitted for feedback for a period of two months and until 30 April 2020 (23:59)

The draft report follows up on the work that was communicated in previous System Operation European Stakeholder Committees (SO ESCs) and the webinar on "CBA to assess the time period required for FCR with limited energy reservoirs (LERs)" (published here).

It presents the CBA approved Methodology, the results of the CBA analysis and details the pros and cons of all possible options of minimum activation time period for both Continental Europe and Nordic synchronous areas.

In March 2019 all TSOs of the CE and Nordic synchronous areas have submitted for regulatory approval assumptions and methodology for the CBA to be conducted, in order to assess the time period required for FCR providing units or groups with limited energy reservoirs to remain available during alert state.

All Nordic NRAs have approved the assumptions and methodology for the CBA on 16th April 2019, whereas all CE NRAs have given their approval on 23rd May 2019. All the assumptions regarding the input data and the methodology to be used to undertake the CBA are included in the draft report.

Article 156(11) provides that by 12 months after all NRAs approval, all TSO’s of the CE and Nordic synchronous areas are requested to submit the results of the CBA to the regulatory authorities. The public consultation aims at collecting the opinion of the affected stakeholders with a view to concluding on a recommended time period for both Nordic and Continental Europe synchronous areas.
