See disclaimer at the end of the page.

Activation purposes of balancing energy bids

Pursuant to Article 29(3) of the EB Regulation, all TSOs need to develop a proposal for a methodology for classifying the activation purposes of balancing energy bids, and submit it to all regulatory authorities for approval and to the Agency for information.

Action 1: By February 2019, all TSOs submitted to all regulatory authorities and the Agency the proposal for a methodology for classifying the activation purposes of balancing energy bids.

Action 2: By September 2019, all regulatory authorities requested from all TSOs to amend the proposal for a methodology for classifying the activation purposes of balancing energy bids.

Pricing of balancing energy and cross-zonal capacity

Pursuant to Article 30(1) of the EB Regulation, all TSOs need to develop a proposal for a methodology to determine prices for the balancing energy that results from the activation of balancing energy bids for the frequency restoration process pursuant to Articles 143 and 147 of SO Regulation, and the reserve replacement process pursuant to Articles 144 and 148 of SO Regulation, and submit it to all regulatory authorities for approval and the to Agency for information. This proposal need to define also a methodology for pricing of cross-zonal capacity used for exchange of balancing energy or for operating the imbalance netting process.

Pursuant to Article 30(5) of the EB Regulation, where all TSOs identify inefficiencies in the application of the aforementioned methodology, they may request an amendment and propose an alternative pricing method. In such case, all TSOs need to perform a detailed analysis demonstrating that the alternative pricing method is more efficient.

Action 1: By February 2019, all TSOs submitted to all regulatory authorities and the Agency the proposal for a methodology to determine prices for the balancing energy that results from the activation of balancing energy bids for the frequency restoration process and the reserve replacement process, and for pricing of cross-zonal capacity used for exchange of balancing energy or for operating the imbalance netting process.

Action 2: In July 2019, all regulatory authorities referred the proposal for a methodology to determine prices for the balancing energy that results from the activation of balancing energy bids for the frequency restoration process and the reserve replacement process, and for pricing of cross-zonal capacity used for exchange of balancing energy or for operating the imbalance netting process to the Agency for a decision in accordance with the procedure set out in Article 5(7) of the EB Regulation.

Standard products for balancing capacity

Pursuant to Article 25(2) of the EB Regulation, all TSOs need to develop a proposal for a list of standard products for balancing capacity for frequency restoration reserves and replacement reserves, and submit it to all regulatory authorities for approval and the Agency for information.
