ACER to decide on methodologies related to long-term cross-zonal electricity capacity in two regions


​The National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) for energy in Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Sweden (the Baltic capacity calculation region) asked the Agency to decide on a common methodology for calculating long-term cross-zonal capacity. Similarly, the NRAs of Bulgaria, Greece and Romania (the South East Europe Region) asked the Agency to decide on a common methodology to split long-term cross-zonal electricity capacity.

Both methodologies will contribute to enhance a coordinated use of long-term cross-border capacity in the Baltic and the South East Europe capacity calculation regions, fostering the security of regional supply.

The Agency must reach a decision on the Baltic Region before 18 November 2020, and by 28 November on the South East Europe region. The Agency will publicly consult on the respective decisions in August.
