What is it?

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A capacity mechanism is a temporary measure introduced by Member States to remunerate capacity resources (e.g. generators, demand-response or storage units) for security of supply services.

Capacity mechanisms can be introduced or maintained only if a resource adequacy concern has been identified, and should be open to cross-border participation.

The ACER-CEER Market Monitoring Reports​ includes topics related to security of supply, estimating the cost incurred for the capacity mechanisms in operation or under consideration. ​
