What is capacity allocation?

​​​​​​​​​​ACER monitors the effective implementation of the Capacity Allocation Mechanisms Network Code and shares its findings in a dedicated report. ​

Capacity allocation provides mechanisms to obtain capacity products from transmission system operators. It is usually underpinned with a capacity contract between the network user and the network operator. ​​

Why is capacity allocation important?

​Previous capacity allocation methods did not provide equal and transparent access to potential entrants to the capacity markets, hindering competition.

What does ACER say?

​Equal and transparent access to transmission capacity in the EU is not a major obstacle anymore. The progressive reduction of the old capacity contracts and their gradual replacement with new ones addressed most of the existing constraints.​​​
