​​DEVELOPMENT OF METHODOLOGIES RELATED TO CAPACITY CALCULATION AND ALLOCATION IN BALANCING TIMEFRAME

 

See disclaimer at the end of the page.

 

Cross-zonal capacity calculation methodology

Pursuant to Article 37(3) of the EB Regulation, TSOs of each capacity calculation region need to develop a methodology for cross-zonal capacity calculation within the balancing timeframe for the exchange of balancing energy or for operating the imbalance netting process, and submit it to the concerned regulatory authorities for approval and to the Agency for information.

No actions have been completed yet with regard to this topic.

 

Application of an allocation process of cross-zonal capacity

Pursuant to Article 38(1) of the EB Regulation, two or more TSOs may set up a proposal for the application of a methodology for a cross-zonal capacity allocation process for the exchange of balancing capacity or sharing of reserves and submit it to the relevant regulatory authorities for approval and to the Agency for information.

Action 1:
In April 2019, the TSOs of Denmark, Finland and Sweden submitted to all the concerned regulatory authorities and the Agency the proposal for the application of a methodology for the market-based allocation process for the cross-zonal capacity for the exchange of balancing capacity for Frequency Restoration Reserves with automatic activation.
