ACER to decide on the electricity fallback procedures in 13 EU Member States


Increasing the harmonisation of market procedures

​​​​The National​ Regulatory Authorities for energy  in Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia – the so called Core region - asked the European Union Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) to decide on their fallback procedures.

Fallback procedures ensure efficient, transparent, and non-discriminatory capacity allocation in case the single day-ahead algorithm is unable to produce results on the day-ahead auction.

ACER Decision will contribute to increase the procedural harmonization across various market parties and change the operational timing for the publication of the shadow auction results, therefore reducing the risk of decoupling.

The deadline for ACER to reach a Decision is 4th June 2021.​
