In the draft position paper*, NRAs within GRI NW explain whether they see added value (and under what conditions) in introducing implicit allocation in the gas market and – should this be the case – when this coupling mechanism should be introduced.
Given the fact that the design of the mechanism is only relevant if there is added value (and practical experiences seems to be needed to determine the design), the position paper does not answer the question what the implicit allocation mechanism should look like in detail. However, the position paper will present the relevant design issues.
* - The Brattle report that is published has served as a starting point for the position paper. As such, the Brattle report is published as a background document. In the position paper itself, the background and role of the Brattle report is expained in more detail.
