Fostering a single EU balancing market for electricity: ACER launches two new consultations

09/03/2020

​The European Union Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) launches today two public consultations in line with the EU Regulation establishing a Guideline on Electricity Balancing, which aims to integrate the EU balancing markets.

All interested parties are invited to submit their comments by 29 March 2020.

The first consultation refers to the methodology for classifying the activation purposes of balancing energy bids. The methodology provides the description and rules for all possible activation purposes, ​providing the same level of transparency when activating balancing energy bids across Europe.​

Access the consultation.

The second consultation is on further specifying and harmonising the imbalance settlement, which should ensure that the balance responsible parties support the system's balance in an efficient way.
